A couple of months ago I wrote on the difference between Blogs and

Wikis. (Blogs Vs Wikis)

In the article I spoke of Wiki use by government primarily for internal use, in conjunction with an organization’s intranet.

This article; (Wiki advocate sees government uses)

discusses the use of external facing wikis for government use.

I think it does a good job of showing how wikis can be used by government to carry on a conversation with the public.

And for those of you that might be interested in trying out a wiki for

either internal or external use and are committed to products that will

run in a Microsoft environment, check out OPENWIKI.
