"Wiki = Agile Collaboration"
Tuesday 14:00 - 15:00 (Tools Room)
Wiki is "the simplest online database that could possibly work" in the words
of its creator, Ward Cunningham. It provides a server-side tool to create and
manage Open Content on the Web. Wiki is unusual in that it's a minimalist
yet flexible solution for content co-authoring that allows anyone with a
forms capable browser to play, and in that it allows both content and
structure to be edited by anyone. Wiki can also be a personal, Internet-
aware, relational notebook and presentational tool. The presentation
intends to touch on some of the fundamental properties of a simple Wiki
system and discuss some of the issues relevant both to personal use and to
public deployment. The public Wiki used for the presentation will allow
continued discussions after the conference.
