Wiki Developer Meeting Today; WikiWednesday Tomorrow

Two important events are happening in Wiki-land today and tomorrow. First, this afternoon at 2pm PDT (21:00 GMT), there will be a worldwide IRC meeting for Wiki developers on #wikiohana at irc.freenode.net. The main agenda item: WikiCreole. This was one of the outcomes from RecentChangesCamp last month. The cool thing is that folks have been hanging out regularly on the channel, and that Andreas Gohr whipped up an IRC logger for us. If you do any Wiki development, please join us!    (MBM)

Tomorrow night, WikiWednesday will be moving to Citizen Space in San Francisco, and I’ll be the inaugural speaker at the first non-Palo Alto event. I’ll be talking about my recent work on Wiki Interoperability:    (MBN)

Market growth is healthy for everyone in the Wiki world. More Wiki companies and technology means greater market awareness and innovation. But Wikis are also about community and collaboration. Are we as a community collaborating as much as we could? Are there opportunities we’re missing by not collaborating more? Eugene Eric Kim will preview his upcoming paper on Wiki interoperability, where he describes real-world end-user pain, concrete opportunities (especially ways Wiki developers can help the entire space by improving their own tools), and a practical strategy (WikiOhana) for achieving interoperability.    (MBO)

Hope to see many of you there!    (MBP)
