Wiki as Collaborative Game Design Tool

Here's an example to think about. Paranoia, a role playing game, was recently updated with the help of a load of its fans who contributed ideas and content by means of a wiki. This makes me wonder if some creative product (game, story, poem) could be collaboratively written in a K-12 environment using the same technique. Hmm.

I've been wanting to do something interesting with SubEthaEdit - a networked (and still Mac only) text editor that allows everyone collaborating on a document to communicate simultaneously.

I thought collaborative poetry, or an Esquisite Corpse-style story could be built with the right set of poeple.

Apparently there's a plugin for the editor for kwiki (source: Corante.

I have to say Bernie, I really envy your job -- playing with technology (to excellent purpose!) and making cool learning environments. How does one get that gig?

HI Joe... to get my gig you have to grind away at a doctorate in instructional design and then pray for a faculty position to open up in Shangri-La. I'm very lucky.
