It's not clear to me what this top level wiki wants to be, so I have created a separate wiki for unstructured notes and journalling:
Search works in a particular way in Federated Wiki, specifically it looks in sites that are in the current Neighborhood (_sorry, it's American English_). To add further sites to the Neighborhood, click the blue chevrons to the right of a list of site flags in one of the boxes below
I also have a couple of subject-specific areas:
Julian Elve wiki.synesthesia.co.uk forage.wiki.synesthesia.co.uk pkm.wiki.synesthesia.co.uk code.wiki.synesthesia.co.uk product.wiki.synesthesia.co.uk synesthesia.fed.wiki.org
Other ways to expand the search neighbourhood - visit one of these pages and click through
If you have a wiki you can edit your copy of these pages. Press [+] to add more writing spaces. Read How to Wiki for more ideas.
