September Roundup

Since it’s the last Monday of the month, we wanted to take a look at some of the cool Wikispaces-related things that people have been talking about this month. Here are some of the highlights from September:

Canterbury Earthquake
On September 4, a 7.1 magnitude earthquake struck the South Island of New Zealand. The earthquake-shakeup wiki was created in response to that, so everyone could share their stories, experiences, and ideas. Here are some of the comments that were posted to Twitter:

Glogster Widget
This month, we released a new widget that makes it easier to integrate glogs into your wikis. We announced it on September 9, but you all scooped us:

It looks like a lot of you are using wikis to share your techniques and favorite resources. Here a few that you tweeted about:

Cool Projects
And, of course, as much as it’s never a surprise to learn that you’re doing cool things with wikis, it’s always a blast to see those projects first-hand. Here are a few that you shared with the world:
