grassroots’r’us and wikis

Wired News reports that the BBC is launching a new website in October. The ‘ican’ site is a citizen interaction centre where people will be able to join together and discuss grassroots campaigns.

There is more stuff on “Emergent Democracy” on Joi Ito’s Wiki.

I bet now you are thinking “What’s a wiki“, well I have only seen the word in the last couple of days. Apparantly it’s another way of creating web content using a browser:

“Allowing everyday users to create and edit any page in a Web site is exciting in that it encourages democratic use of the Web and promotes content composition by nontechnical users.”

Maybe I’ve just missed something somewhere anyway…
