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, 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”.
