"Once it’s gone, it’s gone."
A lot of schools seem to be migrating to Microsoft’s SharePoint software for web authoring.
While I don’t have firsthand experience with SharePoint, from what I hear, it is not easy to learn and, obviously, you have to pay for it. With all the new robust and free open source solutions like MediaWikia, Drupal, etc. out there, I’ve wondered why one would use SharePoint.
Then I read this humorous article about “Micropedia,” Microsoft’s installation of the open source MediaWiki software. Apparently, SharePoint lacks revision control, or as Microsoft researcher Steve Ickman says, “Once it’s gone, it’s gone.”
