As a step to get things moving I've created a subdomain called  Currently there is not a wiki there
tho I will be working on installing media wiki. **  Currently there is
a default file that describes how I imagine this could work.
I also created a files subdirectory and put files I have that have been
referenced in cohousing-L messages there. (The ones with links at currently )

** I'm studying the install instructions at:
I think I'm up to installing it but collaboration welcome - see wiki-L
below or write me off list.

Tho it may have some disadvantages media wiki seems like the "standard"
since wikipedia uses it and therefore the best choice (less learning
required of collaborators since most probably already use wikipedia some).

I think some sort of collaborative approach should be used and I prefer an
"all topics about cohousing" related wiki.  Since cohousing-L is 'all
topics about cohousing' the wiki can be used to organize the list archives
in an edited topical fashion.

Someone suggested a blog but that is again an essentially linear rather
than topically organized media and therefore inappropriate.

To relieve cohousing-L of messages related to getting the wiki going
I've started a separate discussion listserv - wiki-L [at]
I encourage all interested and especially those with expertise
to subscribe:

 who is also excited that our son has been accepted to

PS Tree, I hope my unrestrained enthusiasm has not gotten out of control
and prematurely forged ahead but it seemed like the thing to do.  The wiki
should allow for lots of collaborative efforts.
