How personal can a wiki really get? Maybe I'm just another spoiled brat in this self-serving generation of ours, but the idea of authorship is somewhat important to me. While I see the value of the wiki for collaborative work, I sort of like to keep my thoughts as my thoughts. Identity is something that many of us value a great deal. While sharing knowledge and ideas anonymously for the good of the wiki world is terribly romantic, it would take some effort to swallow the pride of ownership. But I suppose there is a sense of communal pride after a number of individuals have worked toward a common purpose. I guess that's the bond that forms the "neighborhood," and keeps the good folks ever-vigilant on their electronic porches, sipping lemonade and feeling safe. Okay, so this idea is suddenly growing on me.
