CHM Community Wiki    (2)

The CHM Community of Practice (CoP) is the community of museum staff, volunteers and patrons who are engaged in the distributed work on various Computer History Museum ("CHM") projects. Their work is augmented by the "Collaborative Work Environment" infrastructure hosted on CIM3.NET.    (3)

This CHM Community Wiki is an integral part of the community's Collaborative Work Environment ("CWE"). The wiki is intended for use by trusted team and members of the community for collaborative documentation. What we have here is a read-and-write web, as opposed to the traditional read-only web sites. It is a collaborative authoring tool. You can also treat it like the restaurant napkin that you sketch on, to share ideas with people sitting around the table. Except, this time, the wiki is you napkin, and the people you are sharing your ideas with can be all around the world, sitting in front of their computing device connected to the Internet; and they don't even necessarily have to be there at the same time you are sketching.    (4)

First time users should read more about the WikiWikiWeb and then play in the SandBox. Text formatting rules for this flavor of wiki can be found at the TextFormattingRules page. For rules about this Wiki, read our WikiStyleGuide and WikiProcessGuide. Please login (see: upper right corner, or create an account if you have not already done so) with a "WikiWord" styled user name (like "JaneDoe" or "AbrahamLincoln") for yourself before you proceed with a wiki authoring/editing session.    (5)
