What follows was written around 1998. Check http://kai.dyndns.org/

I'm developing intranet apps using perl and databases.
I saw a mention of Wiki in a discussion on slashdot about how to start an open source project.
I tried reading the IETF WebDAV spec but it was too long. I'm very inspired by the elegance and simplicity of Wiki.
I wonder if the ParisPerlMongers
would be interested in hosting a WikiWikiWeb
I work for Dalet Technologies http://www.dalet.com
in Paris, France. Not a very interesting web site, I'm afraid, but there's some cool people working there. It specializes in GroupWare
, which is a kind of VirtualCommunity
, I guess, but for corporations mostly. It has offices around the world:
My friend HarryVelez
is interested in virtual communities. I'll point him to this page and see what he thinks of it. He's started a VirtualCommunity
at Excite http://mycomm.excite.com
but I'm too paranoid to join 'cause they demand my email and I'm afraid they'll try to make money off me. Call me paranoid
, but I'm more attracted to the free spirit (OpenSource
, and very elegant) of something like a WikiWeb
. Harry, what do you think?
Another friend who might be interested in this is JamesRiley?
Another person who might
be interested is VirginieOmar?
. And another: ChristopheChenon
started the ParisPerlMongers
, and he met Kai through that group.
