Suppose you have a small consulting/service shop—what should you use for a website? What is it for? How do you package and sell your knowledge? We shall explore a few examples out there, mostly MS-MVP sites, comment on structure and usability.
Blog, wiki, or both? When should a content be in a wiki and when in a blog?
