A lonely wiki on Wall Street


It seemed like a good idea at the time. Last month the Museum of American Finance on Wall Street, which collects all manner of physical financial artifacts ranging from ticker tape to board games like "Rich Uncle: The Stock Market Game," launched a wiki with hopes of gathering financial tales, too.

But the site has attracted just one main contributor since it went live in October. The featured personal story was posted by "Ninja Dad," a finance executive who writes about the pre-credit crisis days of freewheeling loans to homebuyers like his daughter with no income, no job or assets, (aka the NINJA borrower).
