Michele:

Thanks so much for your, as ever, brilliant observations. Left you a comment and will continue this thread. Very important. Thank you.

Hi Beth,

Great thread and important conversation. The think that I love about wikis is the way they facilitate a wide array of collaborative relationships. For example, my team for Assetmap.org has been using pbwiki.com to collaborate on conceptual design, and whereas I started as the main sort of progenitor for the overall architecture of the Wiki and my team was more reactive and focused on commentary, with time they have become the main content creators in a number of areas.

Interesting stuff, Beth. Thanks for asking me to come an look.

I think there is at least two more levels after "joining" because the act of joining doesn't imply that they are going to add much more than the anonymous contributors. There are the active participants that respond and edit and work with content that has been contributed. And then there are the active contributors who are creating pages and adding significant new content. As you already know, the ratio of people in each of these roles gets smaller and smaller.
