On wikis and other shared spaces, there is a need to simply let go of content once you have submitted it, because as sure as there are pyramids in Egypt, someone will come along and edit (or perhaps even delete) your contribution.

Karyn is asking for help via a post on her blog - So, how did you get started. She also made one comment that was very interesting: To the consternation of my rather conservative university, I am submitting the dissertation in the form of a wiki (although - strictly speaking - is it really a wiki if I don't open it up to the community to co-author, which of course I can't do in this instance).
