Sustainable Enterprises: Innovation Intervention

Community Equity, SunSpace, FOAF+SSL, & KiWi

Collaborative Thinking

We agreed that it was unreasonable and unrealistic to expect that Sun would replace the existing Confluence installation in favor of KiWi, because the aim of KiWi cannot be to create yet another Wiki engine that competes with what is already there.
