Create wiki roster entry

In this assignment, you will edit a composite wiki page and also consider the difference between a wiki page and an online data file.

We are going to create a class roster using a wiki.

I started it off using myself as an example. Note that when you click on "my blog" it opens in a new window and the email address is a link to a mail client.

Add a line with your last name, first name, email address, and a link to your blog. We want the list to be in alphabetical order by last name, so be sure to put your entry in the correct place. (Since it is a wiki, you can fix it if someone else messes up).

When you have added your record, test the link to be sure it goes to your blog, opens in a new window, and is at the proper place in alphabetical order. (I will be checking). When it works properly, print a screen shot showing your updated roster entry, highlight it to turn in.

In a previous assignment, you added a record to our class roster database. Now you have created a class roster using a wiki. Which tool is best for creating something like a class roster -- what is one advantage of a database over a wiki and what is one advantage of a wiki over a database? Print your answer and turn it in.
