Looking to start a personal wiki to save all sorts of little bits of knowledge, for use at a later time. Like information I come across online, on a particular guitar model or arcade cabinet. Or code snippets—why not? Then again, those are all things I could just write about right here.

@janboddez There are a number of wiki enthusiasts here on Micro.blog. @jack is one.

@janboddez Wikis work well for things like that. I myself prefer TiddlyWiki (here's mine). Are you planning to publish the wiki somewhere or is it for private use? Publishing content with TiddlyWiki presents some small hurdles. Others like DokuWiki for a more traditional wiki.

@janboddez I maintain both. Tidbits that I want to associate to dates go on the blog, tidbits based on topics go in the wiki. The wiki is a garden, my blog is a stream.

@jack In reply to . It’s almost certainly going to be entirely private, but I’m hopeful some of it may eventually cross over to the blog. If anything, a wiki will be a much better place to organize and structure thoughts, random findings—anything—than my blog’s draft posts, which never seem to go anywhere.

@jan.boddez.net I too have both, public and private. Actually as a wiki with 1 user is more or less the same as being logged into my CMS, I use wp pages for my wiki like content. Both for private and public. Using Webmention for two-way linking between pages.
