Subject: [Wikiml-l] Call for participation: Conference @ Bangalore - 'WikiWars' To: Malayalam wiki project mailing list <[hidden email]>
The Wikipedia has emerged as the de
facto global reference of dynamic knowledge. Different stakeholders –
Wikipedians, users, academics, researchers, gurus of Web 2.0, publishing houses
and governments have entered into fierce debates and discussions about what the
rise of Wikipedia and Wiki cultures means and how they influence the
information societies we live in. The Wikipedia itself has been at the centre
of much controversy, pivoted around questions of accuracy, anonymity,
vandalism, expertise and authority.
The Centre for Internet and Society (Bangalore, India) and
the Institute of Network Cultures (Amsterdam, Netherlands) are working together
to produce a critical Reader on Wikipedia and to build a Wikipedia Knowledge
Network. Under the rubric CPOV, we propose two events that bring together
different perspectives, approaches, experiences and stories that critically
explore different questions and concerns around Wikipedia. The proceeds from
these two events will result in a Reader that consolidates critical points of
view about Wikipedia.
