This post marks the start of netsmith -- a combination of a blog and a wiki site.

I have the following vision for the simultaneous development of both :

  1. Self Development (researching, writing)
  2. Contributing back to the internet

Here were my criteria for choosing this setup:

  1. Have a reliable, neutrally hosted blog/wiki so that I can focus on generating content.
  2. Create a blog for temporal content, opinions, research which I'm not intending to develop further.
  3. Create a wiki for more permanent content which is likely to be iteratively improved upon over time.
  4. Cost Effectiveness. Both Blogger and Wikispaces have free basic functionality.

Bonuses of this setup: Wikispaces has a feature to import a blog entry to a wiki page which could be useful.
