Earlier in the year a message was sent to Wikispaces users that they would be closing down. Now if you look for the original Irish TeachMeet wiki, set up almost a decade ago, this is what you are greeted with…
In order to keep as much information safely intact as possible, the site contents were wrapped up in a zip file (attached below) – it is not tidy, rather like one of those cupboards you open to have all the contents land on your head and spill on the floor – but it is all there (in two formats, zip files attached below). The three main elements from the “old” wiki have each been reproduced as a page on the “new” wiki
- a Welcome / Fáilte page with overview and instructions
- calendar of TeachMeets in Ireland
- the list of volunteers who have organised TeachMeets in Ireland since 2009
PBworks may prove to be as temporary a home as wikispaces was but hopefully it will do for now, and some bright spark will work out a better way to carve a comfortable space in which to settle. The main thing is that this one is open to anyone in Ireland who wishes to access, use, and develop it.
Head on over to irishteachmeet.pbworks.com and have a look…if you are having a TeachMeet, sign in and add the details.
[So it turns out a virtual house mouse can be as nerve wracking as a real house move. Having done one of each this summer, I’ll be happy to stay put in both instances for as long as possible. For the virtual move, big thanks are due to Richard Millwood and John Hegarty for wisdom, help, and advice. For the fact that the wiki exists in the first place, serious eternal thanks are due to John Heffernan – once a historian, always a historian.]
