I ran across a great interview with Jeremy Ruston, the developer Tiddlywiki, last night. His story and work is very good. If you haven’t used a wiki before, Tiddlywiki is a great way to get started. The power with it lies in the fact that it runs as a file on your computer — doesn’t need a server — and makes for a great information capture device (just wish it would work with an iPhone — there’s hope as I think Jeremy has one and is working on this).
I’ve seen at Moodle.org that the developers of the next generation wiki for Moodle have included the ability to synchronize a Moodle wiki with Tiddlywiki — this has serious potential for our online courses. I’d love for my students & faculty to be able to have an offline wiki tool available to them.
Are you using Tiddlywiki? Let me know how via a comment below.
