Wiki work

I learned how to add some content to the test Wiki page today under the summer activities. It is interesting to read some of the information that has been added by others and of course one always enjoys looking for good eating places! I think I understand the concept of the sharing of information on one site and letting others add or change the information, but I cannot help but wonder how one finds the time to be monitoring and reading everything that is in blogs and wikis. I find it hard to find the time to read just the weekly assignment information and a few examples of what others have added. I can see how a Wiki could be used in libraries as a communication tool for staff, for example if a committee was working on a project. If it was to be used between patrons and staff, I would think there would have to be a dedicated staff member with dedicated time to take on the task of keeping everything current and monitoring the feedback.
