(ThoughtStorms) HowSFWChangesWiki

Context : ThoughtsOnSFW

There's no question that SFW is a radical change to wiki. Some things are quite shocking to me ... for example, the abandonment of the WikiWord convention. This is a real issue as I've been strongly advocating and using it here on ThoughtStorms.

The abandonment of SmartAscii is another wrench to my idea of WikiNature

The lack of a site-wide search is a big issue, given the reliance on the CategoryCategory FolkSonomy convention which wiki pioneered as part of its InformationArchitecture

In balance, though, there's enough right about SFW that I'm committed to adapting to these new conventions.
