Greetings from Palo Alto, California!
Some folks from Wikimedia have joined the ranks of numerous wiki enthusiasts at this year’s Recent Changes Camp. Big questions and conversations circulate…
- who wikis?
- how can we wiki better?
- what will wikipedia look like in 20 years?
- how to retain and grow users and volunteers
Among dozens of great discussions and presentations, Ed Chi of PARC talked about some of their recent research on the users of Wikipedia, how they edit, and what that looks like – including the WikiDashboard.
Lots of photos on the Wikimedia Commons.
The camp continues tomorrow! Still time to drop by. Thanks to Socialtext, Wikihow, Aboutus, WIkia, SolSeed.net, and Atlassian – and to all the volunteers who are making it happen.
