am not sure yet whether I am less happy with it now than I was with the old

actually liked that old site.
I liked the *look* and *organization* of the old site. I was not much
of a fan of the software platform it ran on, which was the reason we
created Seam Wiki - to fix the problems we had experienced on cowiki.
The search sucked. Admin sucked. It was a
total pain to author content. The security "model" was atrocious. Contact
me off list if you need the rest of this list.
Well, I'm not at all convinced that these things are done much better
. Seam Wiki, on the other hand, does them quite well. (Not
perfect, but Good Enough.)
Was it great that we controlled it? Well that's a two-sided
course it was awesome that we got free reign over developing and designing
it. But the downside is/was maintaining it both in terms of administering
the machine and keeping the site software patched etc.
This is a political/organizational problem. i.e. it is an invented
issue, not a Real issue.
