An article about intranet web 2.0 tools by Miguel Guhlin led me to phpMyFAQ, which fills I need I have been thinking about for a while. I want a way to catalog tech tips and answers to frequently asked questions, but this piece of software adds an important component: user additions and revision tracking. This could allow the entire Catlin Gabel community to maintain a knowledgebase of technical knowledge so that individuals improve their knowledge and self-sufficiency over time.
