Welcome to the Boston Interns CoWeb. What is a CoWeb (also known as a Swiki or Wiki)? Essentially, it's a web site where anyone can add and/or modify pages on the web site through a normal web browser.
This CoWeb is for use by all of the summer interns of MERL, Lotus, IBM, Compaq, and Sun. At MERL, we've been using this CoWeb since June; after the 1st intern gathering at Lotus, we realized it would be an ideal space for all of the interns in the area to get to know each other and exchange information. Use it to post activities, entertainment options, restaurant picks, questions, and anything else relevant to summer interning in the Boston area.
For more information about how to create and edit pages, click on the "help" icon above – it's actually pretty easy once you've created a few pages. For starters, try going to the Sandbox and hit the "edit" icon to play around with editing and creating pages.
Once you get the hang of it, go to Who's Who, add your name to the list, and introduce yourself!
