The MicroWiki is meant as a collaborative project. If you want do contribute or discuss the wiki’s content, please leave a comment on the MicroBlog or mail to conferenceATmicrolearning.org. Contributions will be included in the next updated version of the MicroWiki (at least every two weeks).
A Wiki is a special piece of software that makes creating and updating hypertext extremely easy and intuitive. If you have visited [wikipedia | http://en.wikipedia.org]], as you should, you know that ‘classical’ wikis can be updated online on-the-fly, in principle by anyone.
The TiddlyWiki-technology this MicroWiki is using is different, because it is not a server-side wiki.
Thanks to an extraordinary Danny Ayers bookmark, i’ve found two important things:
- an important example of bringing up Semantic technologies and Social software to make an interesting piece of innovation in usability from the end user point of view, and not only: System one activities…
For a start there’s seamless integration of enterprise info and authoring with real-time analysis of what you write. Although there are some familiar technologies involved as well (Wiki/blogging, syndication etc), the tech is presented in a way that from a user’s point of view, it gets out of the way and just works.
There are capabilities like custom (semantic) form building available, but even those look designed to be maximally user-friendly.
Probably the most notable thing about the system is that though there broad facets (context) and views (perspectives), most of the navigation is mostly relevance-based and changes in real time as you interact. Compared to some of the other knowledge management tools out there, I reckon this does deserve the epithet “groundbreaking”.
