How about a wiki for the Chicago meeting?

So, as I wrote in an earlier post, it looked like there were a bunch of archivist bloggers active around the last SAA Annual Meeting in DC. On the Shifted Librarian blog (which I love, love, love, by the way) I found a lovely looking link that said “I’ll be blogging ALA Annual.” When you click on it, it takes you to the official wiki of the 2007 ALA Annual Conference. Take a look at it. I don’t know how much of this duplicates their program, but I can see ways in which we could do something interesting like this for our next annual meeting in Chicago. What do you all think? At the very least, I think it would be something that the Chicago Host Committee might have some fun with. Having been on the DC Host Committee, I think if we’d had something like this we probably would have used it to give people info about DC.

What do you think, fellow DC Host Committee alums? Are the SAA members ready for a wiki?

    This is beyond a good idea – it’s something that should happen, NOW! We need to push this – perhaps even set it up ourselves.

    This is a fabulous idea. I think I know a couple of people on the program committee who might be willing to contribute. We’d definitely have to find someone in Chicago, preferably on the Host Committee, to assist there.
