Organizing Ideas for a company brainstorm: Wiki, blog, what?

I work in a subdivision of a large music entity. There are many high-level ideas and challenges that float around every week. I'm trying to research a system that would allow for our staff of several hundred people to be able to both post ideas and solicit feedback on improving our products, our relationships, etc to a central website as well as being able to respond to others ideas. (for example: "how do we better provide value to cd purchasers" or "what can we do to optimize communication between department") Challenges: - Many of the people involved are not computer-savvy (not sure they'd be able to figure out how to use a wiki) - The individual items will need to be easily categorizable and accessible (this is why i hesitate to use something like Wordpress or Blogger, because after something's no longer on the home page, its out of peoples heads) - There will need to be an intuitive 'global' view I guess I'm kind of asking for something like AskMeFi, actually. But with an additional summary layer. Ideas would be greatly appreciated!

Chronological MediaWiki Category Listings

I run a personal MediaWiki that I organize a lot of academic, business, and project related notes in. I also keep a journal, and all entries are in one category. The entries take the (automatic) form of "June 4 2007". So far so good, except when I look at the journal category page, I get an alphabetized listing, which is essentially useless. Finding a particular date isn't hard, but I'd like to see them all (or, you know, paginated to 60 or so) listed in reverse chronological order. How can I do this?

Cool Stuff to Run In Your Webspace?

When is a wiki not a wiki?

I'm setting up a little site that's like an encylopedia. I want the instant-linking that I've had in VooDoo pad (wiki)--when I type "Lincoln" it automatically links to the "Lincoln" page. But I don't need any other wiki features--this is not collaborative. Is there some way to just get that handy quick-link feature as I write my articles? Thanks, smarties!

Should I use wiki or blog software for my simple database?

I'd like to build a publicly editable online database. Each record of the database will consist of images and a few bits of meta data and maybe some Flickr-style tags. I don't have the skills to build a custom database nor the money to pay someone to build it. Is a wiki the way to go? If so, which free (or cheap) wiki software do you recommend for someone with very little programming knowledge? If I remove the "publicly editable" requirement, would a plain ol' WordPress blog with tags be the cleanest option?

I want a little wiki to host on my web space just for my use and possibly for some friends' use, but I can't seem to find anything to fit my preferences: (1) stores data in text or HTML files rather than a database, (2) lets me change the template by editing the files themselves, and (3) can have cruft-free URL's.

How Does a Newbie Find Out About Wikis?

I really should post this anonymously, but what the hell... I'm at the level of tech savviness/cluelessness where I usually know the meaning of tech. terms but often have no idea what things really mean or how they're applied. So while I read all the references to wikis here on askme, I realize that, aside from wikipedia, I've never looked at a wiki and have no concrete idea what differentiates it from a forum, or a blog.
