A new phenomenon in the creative efforts of IB Members is the explosively extensive use of the IB Wiki as not only a means of archiving the body of known fact, the QSS of IB, but also is a forum for the discussion of various aspects of IB history and culture (outside of the Conculture list) and also for the placement, review and discussion of new Proposals to IB history.
Some concern has been raised over the extensive wikification of IB material, at the expence of the creation of individual web pages by IB Members. It was originally to be hoped that each Member who had worked on a region or country would create a web page to document his contributions in an artistic way that could reflect both individual style and perhaps the styles of the cultures being documented. Nevertheless, the Wiki has proven to be far more efficient as a means of storage and display of IB related material, especially given its power to interlink anything on the Wiki. The Wiki is also a superior place in which to store and display minor materials that really don't fit well in an individual's web page.
The Wiki also gives group Members some greater control over the materials posted, and can better serve to protect early material. We are better able to question, discuss and hammer out compromises. Otherwise, IB could very easily degenerate into 30 different and competing visions.
The IB Wiki, in most respects very professional looking and improving daily, is to be found here.
