WIKI: Grow Your Own for Fun and Profit


Fort Collins, CO, October 14, 2010WIKI: Grow Your Own for Fun and Profit, Alan J. Porter’s latest book, was released today and is available through online retailers and bookstores.

While most books on wikis look at the technology, WIKI addresses the truly difficult questions corporations are asking about wikis: What is a wiki good for? How can a wiki improve productivity? What is the best way to introduce a wiki into a company? How do you keep a wiki alive and well after the first flush of enthusiasm passes? How do you get the most benefit from a wiki?

WIKI: Grow Your Own for Fun and Profit addresses these questions and more. It opens up a world of possibilities for wikis beyond the well known examples, like Wikipedia. And, it addresses the real-world issues that implementers and managers face in implementing a wiki.
