A new Wiki, and strategy for ageless version

I've put up a new Wiki (this one running MoinMoin) at http://wiki.tpu.org/coders/ . The old Wiki found at that address is now accessible at http://wiki2.tpu.org/ .

For various reasons, at the moment, I think MoinMoin is the best Wiki software for us. I didn't get much feedback about Wiki software choices the last time I asked for it. In case anyone has some now, feel free to chime in. One simple Good Thing about MoinMoin is that it runs Python (not icky Perl or PHP), and it doesn't require any other framework, such as Zope.

By the URL and the fact that I have the name of it set to "TPU++" at the moment, it may be apparent that this is supposed to be a "combined" Wiki for TPU and the ageless version. I've thought a lot about this lately, and I don't think there's any reason to have a separate web site for TPU. Any web information specific to teens can simply be included in the bigger picture Wiki. The only other thing where a teen segragation _might_ be appropriate is in good old fashioned socializing, and for that we'll still have #tpu on IRC.

Would anyone like to share any opinions on pro's and con's of various ways of metamorphosizing into an ageless group? I think getting some basic information up on a Wiki is a good first step. After that, I would combine advertising and preparing IRC events, both social and themed educational (i.e., learning particular programming languages).

We can continue being this group of people, and bring in more good people.

And "yes" to your 3nd question.... you have to keep up with posts throughout the months to follow things. =)
