[REBOL] Re: Some thoughts

Hi Petr, On Saturday, August 24, 2002, 4:19:01 PM, you wrote: PK> Is it anything like IOS? Well, yes and no. Yes, because you can do most of the basic things that you get with IOS with a wiki too. No, because an HTML page is in no way close to the power of a reblet. :-) PK> If not PK> - why is it important? :-) Because you can't hope to conquer the world in one step. ;-) (Also, the main point I was making is the opportunities we get in rapid application development, and easy and rapid application maintenance. Instead of programming, you describe: the whole point of REBOL probably.) PK> Does it enable cooperation? It does, in the same way the web does. IOS's surely much better in this regard, but it also depends on what you're doing. PK> How difficult is PK> it to set-up, etc. etc. Just a couple minutes for me, on Linux with Apache. PK> Is there any relatively short (less than 10 pages PK> :-) introduction to what is Wiki good for? It's a dynamic hypertext. It's that short enough? ;-) (Basically you let visitors add or modify the nodes of the hypertext, as well as add or modify links between nodes; Vanilla also allows to decide who is able to modify what, and tells you who has modified what, and other nice things...)
