Smallest Federated Wiki workshop with Ward Cunningham on Thursday, Oct. 13, 2011 at PIE

About

Interested in working with Ward Cunningham on his new wiki project? You can on Thursday, October 13th, 2011 at the Portland Incubator Experiment.

Wiki-founder Ward Cunningham shared his idea of a Smallest Federated Wiki SFW during IndieWebCamp this June. In a few short weeks, he brought his idea to life and is inviting others to work with him on it. This is the second worksession for people interested in contributing to the project.

What is SFW?

The Smallest Federated Wiki project wants to be small in the “easy to learn powerful ideas” version of small. It wants to be a wiki so that strangers can meet and create works of value together. And it wants to be federated so that the burden of maintaining long-lasting content is shared among those who care.

As Ward says,

Our new wiki innovates three ways:

  • It shares through federation,
  • composes by refactoring and
  • wraps data with visualization.

Cre8Camp Portland Beats iPhone’s Twitter Buzz

What’s creative and groundbreaking, and capable of topping iPhone buzz on Twitter?

It’s Cre8Camp, the inaugural unconference that brought 50 creatives to SOUK, a coworking space (322 NW 6th Avenue), this Saturday. Within the first hour of introduction and networking, about 24 topics were developed for discussion, and groups of creatives went off to various conferences rooms and hallways to delve into some of the most intense dilemmas, new media techniques, and social prerogatives that currently exist.

The event was covered masterfully on Twitter, allowing the rankings for the hashtag identifier #Cre8Camp. There was so much buzz involved that #Cre8Camp trumped mention of the newly released iPhone 3G on Twitter. By the end of the day, #Cre8Camp was second only to Dark Knight.

#Cre8Camp Twitter Rankings top iPhone

The conference was organized and sponsored by @stevegehlen, @CarriBugbee (Big Deal PR), @feedia, @brampitoyo, @7thscreen, @sadiemedley, @julsd (Owner of SOUK) Great Lunch from @turoczy (of @siliconflorist), @ahockley (amazing photos of the event to come soon), and the Art Institute of Portland and ISITE Design.

It was live-Tweeted online by @StevenWalling (Wikipedia/Wiki God), @CarrieBugbee (amazing job) Me @caseorganic, @sadiemedley, @staceyanderson, @notbenh @feedia, @brampitoyo, @Theinfovore, @lilbutterfly, @JeanAnnVK, @unclenate.

The event was mind blowing and incredible. It will probably take me a week to fully digest and analyze the information gathered.

If you have information you’d like me to include in future updates on the information gathered during Cre8Camp, please E-mail me at caseorganic@gmail.com.
