A living, interactive, social info community/'book' - could TikiWiki be the way?

United States

I'm not sure how I stumbled on this in my parade of Google searches, but here I am.
This sounds like it has all the ELEMENTS of what I desire - the ease-of-use might be the trick, as I'm no programmer/IT guy - I'm a reporter/writer!

I dream of a grand vision - the NOW Edition - a living, interactive, social info/content community built around something book-like in structure, but which links off to forum threads etc. - and is continually updated.

Have found many folks doing pieces of what I mean - but no one doing it all.

Forums are nice but could be SO much better with a central info item - a 'book' for lack of a better term - always up to date, with the freshness of the Web/today's media and the depth of books. E-books are static old replicas of dead-tree books. I'd like to belong to, subscribe to, be a member of a community built around any passion or topic of curiosity.

Am I in the right/wrong place? If I go hosted on this - no way I'm running it myself or setting up a server - could it be simple to make all these pieces come together? IS there a right/wrong place? Or do I write my e-book to explain what I mean?

I'd be happy to explain more, as I began writing my thoughts in http://fp.fastpencil.com — and have so much more to say on the topic.

I'm not really sure of your question... but you definitely use Tiki to create an online, living "book." This is exactly what I did.

Tiki's all-in-one architecture makes it easy to link your forums to pages to blogs to anything else
