I have set up two Wikis one of which is public and one gets used to manage
conversations and collaborations with friends of family. I had to do some
work on stylesheets which made it usable as a communication tool. It was
unnatural and time-consuming.
I suggest that you use an on-line tool like Ta-Da (Third-party) or the Horde
project (Linux server). They were built to serve as information management
Web applications that are accessible from anywhere.
Converting a Wiki into a todo list is an idea that stimulates my mind. I
think you came up with a good idea, which I would be happy to collaborate
Hope it helps,
