Subject: RE: [regrep] Wiki + ebXML Registry + REST technology

The point is not that registry is backend store for wiki - I realized early back two+ years ago - that wiki already has all the archiving and storage it needs + management control features and web content metaphor (HTML) - and that basic use case of storage medium is not enough.
Back to 2007 - Wiki clearly is the new "Google / MySpace / Skype" buzzword - and so there's a scramble on to deliver enhanced Wiki solutions.
Wiki = collaboration tools via web with minimum intrusive authoring controls.
Now - once people have mined out that bucket - the next level is more formal information management...
It's only a matter of time before the need to have a seamless integration between the wiki front end - and a more capable semantically enabled rich content system - with policy controls - aka - registry - occurs - especially for complex content such as medical research and geospatial data.
Even getting a simple demo system up and running right now could be highly beneficial... with some simple content sharing enabled to the wiki from the registry system - would be my assessment.

+1 on this terrific idea!

Now why didn't I think of that.

Wait. I think I did ;-)



This cool idea is still on my TODO list.
