Provide WebLog-like view. Already done here (2002), others are playing with similar ideas.
Change initial perceived weirdness: (done May2003)
- (Probably wouldn't include all content, but maybe forward links and local BackLinks once they're cached.) Also should probably use Expanding Wiki Words.
Cache local BackLinks list at bottom of each page, to help people find more related content. Maybe cache forward links as well for various purposes.
Provide some sense of place/structure/context for a single wiki page (blogs actually don't do this well).
How important is availability of "visual editor" (MsIE DHTML control) vs simple text markup? Some say it's key, but I think I saw a survey recently saying that most people don't use that tool (though it might not have been very representative - but again, my goal isn't necessarily to get every single blogger switched over).
Work with a WikiEngine that doesn't require a whole Application Server underneath it, to improve installation ease and documentation. Or maybe just track other people's comments about that issue for various engines, and summarize recommendations. (complement to running WikiFarm)
Disadvantages: harder to upgrade code. Hard to work from multiple machines (work vs home). Lose search functionality. Can't allow appending comments to pages, much less editing.
