What's your experience with the life cycle of a Wiki? By implication,
you seem to say that they do *not* die. What do they do? Is there
something about a Wiki discussion that creates more discussion?
Different discussion? Something other than discussion?

I'm really interested. You seem to point toward the technology
supporting the discussion as being different. I'd like to know why
that is. Is there something about the medium that's significantly
different than the message that it supports?
