  • These are my initial reflections triggered by questions and queries from various groups on open Wetpaint wikis I have encouraged a number of people to explore the idea of using online collaborative web sites to connect communities... As they step into using such websites there are obvious questions people ask such as accountability, reliability of information, issues of privacy and fear of people abusing the content... This reflection does not intend to answer all those question but give some food for thought regarding controls available from these websites.
