Sure, you can use a wiki for a survey, but it stops being a survey and becomes something else, because the results will show the effects of social construction. The results are going to be skewed towards the first few respondants, or the resondants who still have content in the wiki at the time when you go in to participate.

Are blogs and wikis even capable of being used to publish? Hardly. They can only be used to broadcast or present. There is no cabability to use a blog, in particular, to publish. We need a new word for what these things to, because there are no publishing value adds, there is no publishing process going on, there is no gurantee of the reliability of the content, which is the purpose of publishing.
