For 2 years now I’ve had this working idea for a book I’ve called The Social Media Trifecta.
- You can see the original post: Capitalism as a Metaphor
- You can see the adapted page The Book: Social Media Trifecta
- You can read the flurry of blog posts I did late last year all categorized as The Book
- Now I’ve turned it into it’s own wiki-blog SocialMediaTrifecta.com
What’s a wiki-blog and why are you using one?

What: If you take WordPress and install the WP-Wiki plugin you get some wiki functionality built into your blog. I’ve been wanting something like this years. So far I love it.
Why: The main reason I wanted a wiki blog is that I think it would be an ideal format for writing a book. You get the benefits of a blog like CMS and the syntax and collaboration of a wiki.Being this is a book about social media and it’s benefits I thought I would eat my own dog food here.
In the true wiki spirit the site will be constantly evolving as I move over the content I’ve already created here, add to it and edit it. As always I’m not totally sure what I’ll do with the book; self publish, seek a publisher, just leave it as a wiki-blog or if I’ll actually ever finish it. Who knows.
