I’m faced with two projects that are both fun and a bit frustrating at the same time.
The first is looking for any guidelines agencies may have concerning guidelines for editing wiki entries about their agencies on non-governmental wikis such as Wikipedia. I regularly review our entry on Wikipedia, make minor corrections, and also work with our public information officer to make any other corrections. What are others doing?
The other project is trying to create a database that can be mounted on our website. We have one option here – InMagic DB Textworks. The design that our IT folks came up with for public access is really not all that user friendly. I’d like to be able to allow members of the public to be able to tag entries. I thought about creating a wiki, but I’m not sure if that is the way to go. The database is for all the bills that passed into legislation in 2008. And I have already started collecting for 2009. Both currently live on spreadsheets. Not optimal to say the least!
