Buying software

So let's say you did a week-long workshop on teaching with technology. For your participation, you're given $500 to spend on any computer software, etc. And let's say you're most interested in Web 2.0 things. Should you buy some good wiki software? Or what? What in the world should you buy?

It isn't that you can't think of things. It's just that there are so many things.

What would *you* buy?

I wouldn't buy wiki software. It's free. Mediawiki - what I use - is free and easy to install. Most Web 2.0 stuff is free.

Only because I'm interested in bringing in video as well - I'd buy a couple video cameras. But that's me.

I've maybe been using the wrong wiki software--the two that I've used (pbwiki and wikispace) have a free version and a much nicer pay-for version. But that's because I've avoided the downloadable versions like mediawiki. I have these gaps in what I want to do (like download wiki stuff) that I need to get over.

Yeah, video cameras aren't a bad idea. Hmm.

Really no problem to install. I can talk you through it if you want.

You need - on your side - two server requirements. Other than that, it's easy.
