Will MixedInk click?

MixedInk

Just heard about MixedInk earlier today. It functions like a wiki where people can start a topic, invite friends to contribute, and let people vote for the version they prefer as final material.

I think the site is promising as it pushes collaboration to a different level. It is also a bit intriguing and political as contributions will have to be voted upon. Such would require a lot of confidence from contributors to be able to participate effectively.

On the minus side, I wonder why would users be motivated to put their post in a 3rd party site like MixedInk if they already have a group blog or a pbwiki (and even monetize).

Of course, there are just initial observations and we’ll see how far this site will evolved.
