Well, I've continued to follow the project and, although I don't work for UH anymore, I've been working on a wiki (freely editable Web site) for Mozilla. I don't know if it'll be useful to anyone but I've tried to make it very easy to read and clear. I think it's a good overview of Mozilla and now it's time to give it back to the community by telling everyone about it.

"infoAnarchy has a great wiki site."

I dunno... forums bore me. Wiki seems like something you can actually contribute to without digging through threads to make sure you're not making the exact same point someone else made. For instance, I would ordinarily NEVER read through all these mozillazine threads. Not because there's no value, I just want everything in front of me.

People actually have overwritten my entries but its quite rare. Most people are very courteous. I guess if enough people started defacing it, there wouldn't really be a point to wikis and then they'd stop visiting... then it there would no longer be a reason to wiki. So there's a ballance and also a critical mass on the popularity of the site. Although I guess we could transition to a user-authorized only system if things got VERY busy on the wiki.

We'll see I guess. This is all fairly new, I understand.
