Let's say that I am writing some text document in word or whatever text editor or online wit google docs, etc. Let's say that at some part of the document I open a new one and extend there the idea. Then later, I go back to the "master" document and add some hyperlink or just put reference (it follows in doc XXXX, page YYYY). I wonder what could be the fastest approach to do this

  • google docs adding easily hyperlink? but how can I organize docs effectively?
  • some text editor with this functionality?

Thanks for your responses

depend on what you want write I would recommend a wiki (mediawiki for example). For me the important factors are:

  • online
  • easy to use
  • if I want I own it (no external server, software whatever. Just install it on your computer. With lamp and co its really easy)
  • you can share your documents. just open the port to your server
  • versioncontrol, never loose any data
  • easy backups

by the way, which is the easiest wiki system to install on a mac? – flow Sep 28 '10 at 12:21
are there similar sysmtes not being wiki? (they seem hard to set up) – flow Sep 28 '10 at 12:22
I used for some time, because it didn't needed a database. Later i moved to mediawiki, because I did like to know it better. For Mac is the LAMP bundle. I never tried it, but if it works similar to lamp it will install everything you'll need for your wiki installation. – wurlog Oct 7 '10 at 12:32
