IMPROVING THE ORGANIZATION OF THE WIKI
In a working session at Zeist, we talked in a Wiki session about how to improve the organization of the wiki and Nancy volunteered to convene a skype and/or telephone conversation this month to solicit ideas on how we might do this.
During this Skype call, we pondered on the improvements we could do in the short term. We thought the Wikis Main Page needed a rehaul and here are some suggestions for new text:
MAKING A ROADMAP OF OUR TECHNOLOGY GOING FORWARD
At the Core group gathering, we talked a bit about what might be our technology road map. What activities do we want to support with technology beyond our email list? How do we design our community's technology? Who supports the implementation (software deployment costs, hosting, support, etc.) going forward? It might be good to have a conversation on the list or off (in case this is not of interest to the larger group) to brainstorm.
IDEA- TAGS Using tags and tag clouds may provide a good way to find stuff of interest off the home page of the wiki. "tag cloud for media wiki": see also:
- cogdog: @NancyWhite- could just as well tag a Wikimedia content with del.icio.us - use one many cloud rendering gadgets. perhaps w/ dedicated acct?
- http://www.tabardag.com/Wiki/index.php?title=Main_Page Nice demo of the last link in action
- dnorman @NancyWhite: MediaWiki has "Categories" that can work kinda like tags. http://tinyurl.com/2df2xe
