museum people

After meeting some people at the museum yesterday, today i have perused museum people, a site by and about all sorts of museum types, and full of interesting exchanges on all the details of life for museum workers.
The exchange about the differences between blogs and wikis yesterday has clarified for me the different merits and purposes of each. Kirsty's final comment

Also a wiki page is intended to be a single page/screen collectively updated, edited, improved. A blog is a sequential conversation with track-bacl options, visibly retaining the trail of evolution and dialogue. A wiki is like the current state of a document, presented as a document. A blog is like a history of contributions that must be trawled through for information.
was a good summary.
