Dissertation Wiki

Tony Karrer

She also made one comment that was very interesting: To the consternation of my rather conservative university, I am submitting the dissertation in the form of a wiki (although - strictly speaking - is it really a wiki if I don't open it up to the community to co-author, which of course I can't do in this instance). First, I can't imagine trying to do a dissertation wiki. So, if they provide comments via the Wiki doesn't that make a lot of sense.

Have social networks replaced groups?

David Weinberger

For example, Clay’s post from 2003 marvels at a “broadband conversation” in which the participants communicated simultaneously by conference call, through a wiki, and through a chat, each from a different source. Google Docs are functionally wikis, except without the draft>compile>post process.) This isn’t to say that groups have to have a selection committee and charge dues.

Could a Super Bowl ad make us love the US Government?

Steve Denning

It is only the draft ad from Wieden+Kennedy for a full half-time show that begins to address the real issue by offering a spoof of Super Bowl advertising, and noting in its concluding line:  “This SuperBowl half-time message paid for by the Committee to Improve the Federal Government’s Approval Ratings by Any Means Other Than Actually Improving the Federal Government."

Measuring the right things

Clark Quinn

For sins in my past, I’ve been invited on to our school district’s technology committee. So, yesterday evening I was there as we were reviewing and rewriting the technology plan (being new to the committee, I wasn’t there when the existing one was drafted).
