Federated Wikis: How Drag-and-Drop Between Federated Wikis Creates a New Model for Publishing and Sharing

Federated Wikis: How Drag-and-Drop Between Federated Wikis Creates a New Model for Publishing and Sharing | Curation Revolution | Scoop.it

This new "federated" wiki model innovates three ways.

a) It shares through federation,

b) it composes by refactoring and

c) it wraps data with visualization.


The "story" is a collection of paragraphs and paragraph like items. The "journal" collects story edits. Should you take my page and edit it as yours, I can see what you've done and may decide to take your edits as my own.


(Thanks to Howard Rheingold for pointing me to this new resource. Check his outstanding newsradar at: http://www.scoop.it/t/infotention)

Internet Summit Summary of notes, pictures, links and other cool stuff from Atlantic BT.

******* Trying something new - crowdsourcing an event after it happened. Idea came to us working on ROI justification for the Raleigh Internet Summit from last week. If you attended share notes via Twitter to @atlanticbt. If you didn't attend send cool stuff the conference should have covered and we will mash it all up and see what we have. Link is to the summary (hoping it grows over Thanksgiving week). Thanks. Marty
