Taming the (WWW) Wild Wiki West: Harnessing the Power of Wikis and Social Collaboration for Publishers

Asheesh Birla, Thomson Learning

Date: Tuesday, June 19
Time: 11:50am - 12:35pm
Location: Crystal Room

Wiki technology can be used to manage collaborative effort and rapidly produce usefully organized information, from software and process documentation to complete published books. But simply installing a wiki and expecting good material to magically appear is a proven recipe for disaster.

Asheesh Birla and Rob Flickenger will discuss their experiences and successes in wrangling wiki users, channelling their effort into a useful, living platform for developing knowledge.
