Wiki Wednesday is happening this week and next, with events in London, San Francisco, and Kiel. In London, August 1, David Terrar and Alan Wood will be speaking, with others signed up for what look like 5 minute talks or demos, and at least 30 attendees.
In the San Francisco Bay Area, we will be meeting at Citizen Space on August 8. The featured speaker is Yoz Grahame from Linden Labs. Here’s his description of the talk:
Wikis take the living library of the Web and, in pulling it into a single shared space, kick it up a notch. What wikis do for collaborative writing, folk logic platforms do for code. It’s the reason Second Life has a hundred new features every day. Social spaces that allow their users to code incubate the birth of remarkable new forms of digital life. But you can get some of their benefits with more traditional wikis too – because wikis aren’t just about text.
I think that will be of interest to wiki developers and anyone in the new media or Web 2.0 field!
The wiki ohana meeting will be happening next Tuesday, August 7, on irc. Details will be here on wikiohana.net.
Meanwhile, I notice that there will be some interesting speakers tomorrow night at the New Tech Meetup. Mary Hodder, Bambi Francisco, Tina Sharkey, Caroline Bernardi, Sheryl Hamlin, and Di-Ann Eisnor will be talking about their companies, along with speakers from Girls in Tech & Women 2.0.
I’ll report on our participation at BlogHer and OSCON tomorrow. See you at Wiki Wednesday! And if you’d like to get notices of future Wiki Wednesdays, join our mailing list or find the London or SF Bay Area Wiki Wednesday groups on Facebook.
