A seal of approval for wikis

The venerable RSA, the UK Royal Society for the encouragement of Arts, Manufactures & Commerce (how'd they fit all that in to 'A'?) has endorsed the use of wikis, according to a press releasey email from Wikispaces. Their initiative is launched under the zeitgeisty sounding OpenRSA. What's more, it all started courtesy of the current belle of the ball:
OpenRSA started as a Facebook group - now with 340 members - after a get-together of about 15 people.

It seems the wiki is working out well:
Participants in events can add their reports, we can embed video, and also take in a
feed from the chief executive of the RSA, Matthew Taylor.

One day all organisations will see and harness the levelling power of wikis as shared workspaces.
