Wiki Waki
I've been seeing the term "Wiki" everywhere lately, and Kristine has a new project helping launch one for the MT world. Welcome MT Wiki:

A Wiki is a set of pages that let visitors share their knowledge in a collaborative format. This Wiki is dedicated to helping users of MovableType, a content management system.

This is a place to add tips, tricks, instructions, and definitions. Topics are editable so everyone can add to them. [link]

Best of wishes to the new Virtual Venus gang!

UPDATE: Also from Kristine, word of two new desktop clients made specifically with MT in mind. Kristine recommends Zempt, and in her comments Doc suggests SharpMT.

Hey boy take a look at me...let me dirty up your mind...

Glad you enjoyed the news! I had fun learning about a Wiki; I had no idea what they were until Brenna started with it... :)

My husband has been doing the wiki thing for about a year now, but I never knew what it was or what it was for. I just took another look at his Wiki info and I still don't really get it.

Any programs out there for the Mac?

Laure, you might check out the list of Desktop Client Tools on this page - http://www.movabletype.org/resources.shtml :) One of them is Mac-only, and I'm thinking its Kung-Log, but I might be wrong.

Thanks Robyn! Now if I could just stop singing "a-wik-wik..wak!" (beastie boys style) all the time. :D

And Kristine, I think you're right about Kung-Log. :)

Beastie Boys I could live with...I've got that stupid "Jam On It" song by Newcleus stuck in my head.

Call me a bit naive, but how exactly does the wiki concept differ from a message board?

Hey - if you're using a Mac, Kung-log is THE way to go for offline browsing. One of the reasons why I wrote SharpMT in the first place is because I missed Kung-log when I went back to a PC notebook from a PowerBook. The author of Kung-log has his stuff together, I can tell you that.
