In the Tom Petty hit “Free Fallin’” there is a lyric that has been on my mind relating to the TechNet Wiki and community (little “c”).
“,,,and the good girls are home with broken hearts…”
Leaving aside pop-pysch analysis of the memes in the song, one thing you are not going to find on the TechNet Wiki are lots of good girls/guys stayin’ home with broken hearts.
On the wiki, if there is something technically incorrect, or, more often (and more important) just incomplete – you can fix it. Right then and there. No need to leave a comment asking someone to expand on something, just click the Edit tab, and rock on.
For example, on Mon, Sep 26 2011, Ed “stubbed” this article http://social.technet.microsoft.com/wiki/contents/articles/windows-kernel/revision/1.aspx
Luigi Bruno got to work on October 2nd from 9:35 am – 10:52 am: http://social.technet.microsoft.com/wiki/contents/articles/windows-kernel/history.aspx?PageIndex=1
At 11:06 AM, Andre.Ziegler jumped in with the Videos section: http://social.technet.microsoft.com/wiki/contents/articles/windows-kernel/compare.aspx?revB=8&revA=6
Luigi returned an hour later: http://social.technet.microsoft.com/wiki/contents/articles/windows-kernel/compare.aspx?revB=10&revA=8
Then Ed formatted it and retired the stubness of it: http://social.technet.microsoft.com/wiki/contents/articles/windows-kernel/compare.aspx?revB=0&revA=11
Thank you all for jumping in and contributing!

Don’t “stay home”, come on in the wiki is fine.
