3) A Missions Wiki

A long-time Brigada reader thinks that someone or some mission organization in the greater missions community ought to start a missions wiki.  Modeled after Wikipedia, it would allow many registered users to contribute articles on a variety of relevant subjects, which are then subject to editing and correction by the community.  Think of the knowledge that could be shared freely among a very large group of people.  The submitter has no idea how to pull this off, but believes that someone out there does. There have been a couple of attempts at this. Could we please list them in the Comments following this item in the online version of Brigada?

He not only describes broad strokes, he also zooms in with remarkably finite approaches. Worth the read. Learn more from WestBowPress.com, where it is priced at $11.95…
