Been playing around with a bunch of blogging, writing and organization tools. The coolest of ‘em all is Instiki, a Wiki implementation that allows the setup of your own Wiki in one minute. I’ve only been playing around with it, but it seems like the easiest way to keep track of text snippets, links, and other bits and pieces of information related to projects. What I haven’t really been able to figure out, however, is whether I could upload the whole thing onto my .Mac space (does .Mac allow me to run PHP?) and whether I’d be able to edit offline if this works.
Another tool I’ve been impressed with is WordPress, which has incredibly nice templates and makes it a breeze to customize. But the intricacies of running PHP and a mySQL database are not for the faint of heart, especially as I’m still getting my mind around LaTeX.
