Thoughts / A little research on wikis / September 26, 2007

I’ve been running a little research on how wikis can affect/improve communication processes for companies, enhance collaboration and consolidate files and information versions.

Here are some of the most interesting articles I have found (i’ll be updating it as I continue my check)

Case Studies:

Examples:

  • Nokia and Vodafone Share Ideas – ShareIdeas.org is an online community and a wiki for sharing ideas on how to use mobile communications for social and environmental benefits.
  • Microformats – Microformats are a way of adding simple markup to human-readable data items such as events, contact details or locations, on web pages, so that the information in them can be extracted by software and indexed, searched for, saved, cross-referenced or combined.
  • Lussumo Documentation – This wiki contains documentation for Lussumo software like Vanilla and the Filebrowser.
  • Freebase – Freebase is an open shared database of the world’s knowledge
