social software

Social software is a more common term for the recently overused buzzword Web 2.0? - which essentially was about the evolution of the web from a "read only" environment to one where any and all of use began creating, sharing and interacting on the web.

Most specifically, Michael builds, customizes, designs and helps manage wikis (like this one) using open source software.

Why wikis? - really the name of the technology doesn't matter - its about having a website with a whole shed full of tools and widgets, blogs, calendars, spreadsheets, and really easy to use and easy to build stuff that isn't owned by some megacorp and you don't have to keep paying for month after month. Wiki is just the platform for all that.
