Something is puzzling me - how come traffic on the Erlang wiki is so
low? - once upon a time Luke's original wiki was buzzing with
interesting stuff - it died (due to hardware problem) and has never

reason I can think of is that either:
- people never find it, or,
- they don't realize what it is when they get their, or,
- they think the entire idea is silly
I think this is a great shame since the wiki seems the ideal place
for collaborative work to take place -

4) Press preview
You will see the page
5) Press store
Your publish on the wiki
That's it. If you have a URL to a mug shot (picture) of yourself add
a reference - like I did - It would be nice to see who I'm talking to.
