Fwd: [wiki-research] How and Why Wikipedia Works: An Interview with Angela Beesley, Elisabeth Bauer, and Kizu Naoko
>In preparation of WikiSym 2006, I conducted an interview on "How and
>Why Wikipedia Works".
>This article presents an interview with Angela Beesley, Elisabeth
>Bauer, and Kizu Naoko. All three are leading Wikipedia practitioners
>in the English, German, and Japanese Wikipedias and related
>projects. The interview focuses on how Wikipedia works and why these
>three practitioners believe it will keep working. The interview was
>conducted via email in preparation of WikiSym 2006, the 2006
>International Symposium on Wikis, with the goal of furthering
>Wikipedia research. Interviewer was Dirk Riehle, the chair of
>WikiSym 2006. An online version of the article provides simplified
>access to URLs.

>WikiSym 2006, the 2006 International Symposium on Wikis
>General website: http://www.wikisym.org/ws2006 >
>This year's Wiki Symposium brings together wiki researchers and
>practitioners in the historic and beautiful city of Odense, Denmark,
>on August 21-23, 2006. Participants will present, discuss, and move
>forward the latest advances in wiki contents, sociology, and
>technology. The symposium program offers invited talks by Angela
>Beesley ("How and Why Wikipedia Works"), Doug Engelbart and Eugene
>E. Kim ("The Augmented Wiki"), Mark Bernstein ("Intimate
>Information") and Ward Cunningham ("Design Principles of Wikis").
>The research paper track presents and discusses breaking wiki
>research, the panels let you listen to and contribute to topics like
>"Wikis in Education" and "The Future of Wikis", and the workshops
>let you get active and contribute to on-going research and
>practitioner work with your peers. (Many workshops accept walk-ins,
>so it is not too late!) What's more, for the first time, we will
>have an on-going open space track (to replace BOFs) so you can get
>active and involved in an organized fashion on any wiki topic you
>like. We believe this is how to get the most out of your experience
>at WikiSym 2006!
>And, of course, if you can't wait, please join our conversation on
>wiki research and practice on the symposium wiki! For the program,
>please see the program information. For an overview of time slot
>allocations, please see the time grid.
