Wondering about Wiki
I grow tired of being misunderstood and corrected, by others as well as myself. Stop second-guessing. Flash floods can be unpredictable and precarious; ideas can have the same outpouring force. Usually there is a pressure build up before either. I probably don't have the best content management system (CMS) in place, but I feel my perspective is valid and valuable. I voice it regularly as friends can attest, although there is a huge amount of silenced chatter that streams through my mind. No doubt, I'm not alone. I began wondering about a different, more effective system of self-organization and expression, keeping in mind that my values and beliefs hold precedence. I believe in spontaneity and following the impulse and inspiration of new thoughts and ideas. This process doesn't appear structured on the surface, but I sense there is an inner organization that calculates algorithms of potential beyond my conscious capacity. Interestingly, I attended a poetry workshop using the wiki format for creating a self-portrait poem. This opened the flood gates and allowed me to wonder further about wiki, which is a content management system.
Here's a simple definition from dictionary.com for wiki. "A website that allows collaborative editing of its content and structure by its users." WhatIs.com adds, "A wiki website operates on a principle of collaborative trust. Wiki programs allow users to create and edit content." As you may know, I'm fascinated with tech terminology and use it as an overlay for personal experience. I'm excited by what I've read and explore further. LifeWire states, "Through a collaborative effort, we are able to create a resource that is superior to anything that we could have accomplished alone."
I feel like I've struck gold with wiki. Notice the key words being used: collaborative, content, structure, trust, resource, create. These concepts make an ideal foundation for any structure - a corporation, culture, nation, self. Racing beyond ideas for restructuring my personal CSM, I began to imagine a Wiki Nation where everyone's content, voice, expression adds to the whole. Forget political parties, voting, branches of government. It's simple. We each contribute and express our content, edit it with new ideas and inspiration, collaborate, and create a resource superior to anything that we could have accomplished alone.
All solutions are in place, the wiki software provides the structure and organization - it's a CMS. Making a wiki account is free. What are we waiting for? I'm envisioning a wiki world!
