Writing in wiki

Here we develop and share thoughts on how to enable folks to cultivate their know-how of writing in wiki. We do this at a simple and perhaps also at a more fluent and powerful level.

For communicating to others in the pod we post news here Writing in wiki news. We all have a page with this name.

To begin, we'll list in an ad hoc way the features of wiki that are being used in the present site. Later we may rationalise and categorise this list.
