Every now and then I’m surprised to learn that the Rainbow Community for Halifax, Nova Scotia uses Oddmuse for their site. Daniel MacKay runs the site and that makes him the biggest Oddmuse user other than me, I think.

Oddmuse is the wiki engine running this site. A wiki is a kind of light weight content management system with an emphasis on simplicity (ideally, hah!). Basically anybody is can edit pages. Originally there was not much more to it than that and projects like Smallest Wiki showed how you could get these going in just a few lines of code. Or this wiki I wrote in Go a few years ago: Oddµ.

If you want to come and talk to us, fire up your IRC clients and join us on Freenode, in the #oddmuse channel. The link takes you to a web chat thing so that you can get a feel for it without having to struggle with an IRC client.
