Wiki 2.0: The Most Powerful Extensions for MediaWiki

Thursday, 14 September 2006, 13:00, Workshop Room

Erik Moeller, Journalist, Wikipedia Author and Developer, Berlin

Wikis have long become more than flat text databases. MediaWiki, the software of Wikipedia, is at the center of the development of innovative features and extensions. In this workshop at least four MediaWiki extensions will be discussed:
  • Semantic MediaWiki - machine-readable annotations of wiki content
  • Wikidata / WiktionaryZ - structured data in a wiki
  • LiquidThreads - a new model for discussion pages
  • Wikiwyg - WYSIWYG in wiki mode

Target audience: technically interested users of wikis, especially MediaWiki.
