“What is a Wiki?” answered by Martin Cleaver (@mrjcleaver) and Dan Keldsen (@dankeldsen) with an intro by Robert Lavigne (@RLavigne42)
On January 28th, 2011, Dan Keldsen of Information Architected Inc, and I co-presented an Enterprise 2.0 and Collaboration Workshop to the 5TH Annual AFMNet HQP Professional Development School.
The Advanced Foods and Materials Network (AFMNet) is “Canada’s front line of research and development in the area of advanced foods and bio–materials — from new, lower cost antibiotics, to improved frozen food quality to faster healing wound dressings.”
As part of the workshop, we discussed the opportunities Wikis present to organizations wishing to fully leverage the collaboration within their communities. When the question was asked, “What is a Wiki?”, we turn the microphone over to my Knowledge Workers Toronto co-chair Martin Cleaver to share his insights.

Wikis are a powerful class of Enterprise 2.0 application that fundamentally changes the nature of sharing information. Unlike many E2.0 applications that are still early stage, the paradigm and feature set of wikis have stablized to a point where their utility is widely accepted. As an application, a Wiki serves as a good first step toward the collaborative workplace. Continue reading →
