At the request of several people, and after some discussion about what the best way to do this is, I have set up a wiki so that people can put down gift ideas for Christmas.
If you aren’t familiar with what a wiki is, here is a short description (taken from this web page):
What is Wiki?:
Wiki is a piece of server software that allows users to freely create and edit Web page content using any Web browser. Wiki supports hyperlinks and has a simple text syntax for creating new pages and crosslinks between internal pages on the fly.
Wiki is unusual among group communication mechanisms in that it allows the organization of contributions to be edited in addition to the content itself.
Like many simple concepts, “open editing” has some profound and subtle effects on Wiki usage. Allowing everyday users to create and edit any page in a Web site is exciting in that it encourages democratic use of the Web and promotes content composition by nontechnical users.
So what we have is a web page that you can edit to add your Christmas List gift requests. More importantly though, you can also add suggestions for other people in your family. The contributions are anonymous, but are recorded in order so that they can be undone. You are now empowered. Go forth and edit:
