Wikis everywhere…

During my morning bloglines reading, I came across a post (Gadgetopia, I believe) about Amazon’s use of wikis in book reviews/overviews: Amazon’s most edited wikis. The concept of wikis, like blogs, is so simple that it’s easy to question whether it’s really a big change. Much like planning a trip, however, the small degrees at point of origin substantially impact the destination. Wikis and blogs seem fairly “non-revolutionary”…but the starting point leads to a very different destination for communication and learning than an LMS or traditional course.
