Swik – wiki meets open source software download

You may remember last summer when I visited with you I mentioned that part of SourceLabs would involve launching a service that makes it easy for developers to find, discover, and learn about open source projects in a comprehensive, collaborative manner. We publicly launched that site today – http://www.swik.net. Swik brings together concepts from wikipedia, delicious, and blogs to provide a service that is both open and structured. I thought that you and/or others at O’Reilly might be interested in taking a look.

This is a different take on what we’re doing at O’Reilly with CodeZoo. There’s a lot to like about each of the services. But I have to say that I’m impressed with the wiki aspect of Swik. Nice! We’ll have to think about whether to put some wikiness into CodeZoo…
