how to wiki

While searching the Wired site for the article we were assigned last week, I came across apart of the site set up in a wiki format called “Wiki How-to Wiki”. It offers techie how-to’s on all kinds of topics. Here’s a couple:

Save YouTube Videos on Your Hard Drive

Watch YouTube on Your iPod

Watch Higher Quality YouTube Videos

Find Lost Web Pages

Make a Local Backup of Your Hotmail Account

Create Your Own Font

 Make Your Blog Popular

I just thought this site was really interesting to scroll through. If it continues to grow I imagine every hack available will be archived here. Enjoy!

 Hey gang, just want to let you all know that I changed the social network from a private network to a public one and we can now add it to our RSS feeds without any troubles if you want to. It’s a great thing to upload ridiculous videos and music clips (since we can’t upload music on this blog). Feel free to add to it! Here’s the link :):):)

delicious.jpg I see a few of you have signed up with del.icio.us out of curiosity. This is great.

Let’s make it official and see what we discover. I would like everyone to go to del.icio.us and sign up for an account. From then on, start posting to del.icio.us anything you think would be of interest to the class. Tag them in whatever way you see fit, but at a minimum add the tag “bus442.”

To make posting to del.icio.us easier, I suggest you install the bookmarklet in your browser.

So that everyone can see what people are bookmarking, please add the RSS feed for del.icio.us posts tagged “bus442” please add the following feed to your RSS subscriptions: feed://del.icio.us/rss/tag/bus442

Finally, if you scroll down the sidebar on our site, you’ll see a section that highlights the “bus442” bookmarks.
