Katipo Project Survival Kit


Kete is open source software, originally developed by Katipo Communications for Horowhenua Library Trust, that you can use to create online areas for collaboration for your community. Write topics and upload images, audio, video, documents. Discuss them all. Link them together.

It's been called a "relational wiki" and "a mashup between content management and knowledge management". It's a fun way to get things done.
