Another vote for a Wiki

Chris O'Brien of NextNewsroom has "start a wiki" at the top of his list of suggestions for reinventing newsrooms. Except he says, "Along with news, information is an important service a newspaper provides to its community." No, news is information, and it belongs in that wiki too, as previously suggested here (and here again) and being developed by Matt Thompson. Overall, though, Chris has good suggestions, and at least he's thinking about wikification. The Duke Wiki he mentions is pretty good, but on its breaking news page, we find "There is no breaking news on campus at the moment." Like hell there isn't.
