Two pieces of wiki news:

1) Dean Giustini has started the UBC HealthLib-Wiki (A Knowledge-Base for Health Librarians):

The idea is to provide a forum for best practice for health librarians, and other information professionals around the world…….We believe this open-model will more accurately reflect the “wisdom of the field” and bring significant value to the wiki’s knowledge-base.

2) Ganfyd, the clinical wiki, is still going strong and an amazing amount of content is now in there. Due to the distractions of getting the TRIP Database re-designed and free I’ve neglected my input. However, as well as being able to contribute I have, at last, found a way of importing data from ganfyd into TRIP. It’s not a hugely robust way but it should end up covering the vast majority of the content fairly quickly.
