 Website TiddlyWiki - a neat way to keep your notes
WebsiteCool Website
TiddlyWiki is one of those off the wall experimental services that just might catch on. A wiki is a type of database web site that is updated by a community of people. The updating is usually open to anyone and can usually be done right from the web browser. A great example of a wiki is where thousands of people submit their own definitions for words. TiddlyWiki is a personal wiki that only you can change. First you save the site to your PC and then open it with your browser and change it into your own little personal website. Please read the instructions at the TiddlyWiki website for details on how it works. I tried it and found I could only save my changes when I was viewing it with a Firefox browser. Once I've saved my personal TiddlyWiki on my PC, I could upload it to my website for the world to see. I thought about using it for my reviews and newsletters but I think it still needs more work before I'll use it.
Quote from the website - Welcome to TiddlyWiki, an experimental MicroContent WikiWikiWeb built by JeremyRuston. It's written in HTML, CSS and JavaScript to run on any modern browser without needing any ServerSide logic. It allows anyone to create personal SelfContained hypertext documents that can be posted to any web server, sent by email or kept on a USB thumb drive to make a WikiOnAStick. This is the ThirdVersion of TiddlyWiki, and is published under an OpenSourceLicense.
