I spent Saturday night setting up a new wiki for an idea that’s been banging around in my head for a while. When I took a break halfway through and fired up FeedDemon, I found Jeff Sandquist stealing my thunder with his announcement of another brilliant wiki idea – a community wiki for hints and tips on Getting Things Done, the insta-cult productivity approach of David Allen. Jeez, Jeff, what’s a guy got to do to get a little peace and quiet around here to make his announcements in? :-) Anyway, I’ve got a bunch of GTD notes and URLs sitting around, so I’ll contribute them to the GTD wiki… after I get a blog post out of them.

Oh, and did you miss James Newkirk’s announcement of the PatternShare community wiki? Microsoft’s Patterns & Practices group have done a wonderful job of using FlexWiki to slice and dice the many design patterns into different views, making this a required site for anyone building serious enterprise-scale software architectures. Not very surprising when you look at the recent changes list of PatternShare and see Ward Cunningham, Mr Wiki himself, showing up everywhere!

Ok, back to tweaking my own wiki. Watch for an announcement here later this week… preferably on a day when no-one else at Microsoft announces Yet Another Wiki…
