Lee over at Common Craft takes wikis into the household to manage task lists and other household chores:
We’ve been using a wiki to organize travel plans lately and it’s been perfect. We can update it at home or work or anywhere we’re connected. This experience has me thinking about other ways we can use a wiki in our house.
I’ve thought about doing that too – using a wiki as an overall master scrathpad of everything I’m trying to keep track of – currently I’m using an Excel spreadsheet with about 15 worksheets in it. Might be a fun idea. Wikis are built for instant inventory and invention – and updatable easily from anywhere, anytime.
