Wiki Wednesday presentation
London Wiki Wednesday came and went, and very good it was too. I got to meet some interesting people, chat about wiki implentations, and make my own presentation about my research and stuff. The attendance of over 20 was encouraging, given the change of date, my only disappointment being the short time afterwards to mingle and discuss what we’d heard about.
There was some interest in my decription of the social processes around community wikis, in technical aspects of mediawiki implementation and in wikis as an area for ethnographical research. I think the Barn Raising concept was new to everybody except John Barben whom I’d encountered online already at the CPsquare conference earlier this year where the topic was discussed.
Cool to meet Jeremy Ruston, inventor of Tiddlywiki. Clever stuff.
