Dave Perry dropped this tip to me after a brief mention of us needing something to draw three classes together and pool resources. I proposed Google Groups, not least because it is a focussed contact mechanism, and very easy to get a message into people’s life.
I am a fan of Google Groups for maintaining a group dynamic, and spreading the latest news and word quickly. Recently I seem to be collecting them at an impressive rate, I’ve created about 10 now for various communities.
This new resource though does seem pretty neat too, albeit entirely different:
In their own words Swicki is “Swickis are a cross between search engines and Wikipedia – the community can add, delete and improve the results”.
So give it a go, have a play I might blog some more on this once I’ve also played a touch.
