- October 21 2006 - Collaboration request - Open source conference design
- Although this is an article within the Sustainable Communtiy Action wiki, it is not intended to be limited to discussion about only sustainability, or even only conferences, but can be about any sort of gathering. There's I suppose a focus on collaboration - how face to face gatherings can be organised so that, if they choose to be so, they can be more collaborative. I've thought for a long time that there surely must be something about this somewhere but as I haven't yet come across anything that looks truly open source, I decided to try and start something. Any help developing this would be appreciated. Feel free to critique via the discussion page. As the article is very much a first stab it may be that it's not very well explained yet, so comment or challenge, etc might help with this. Philralph 10:10, 21 October 2006 (UTC)
- There's currently a proposal on the main Wikia site, and associated discussion, exploring possibilities for greater co-operation and collaboration specifically between 'Civil Society' type wikicities (or wikicities on the slightly more serious type topics i.e. probably not gaming, sci fi etc). People new to wikicities and just seeing the most active section on the wikicities main page might conclude that there's not much (or enough) in it for them in if they're more interested in the slightly more serious stuff. The proposal is: Proposal for a Civil Society Quarter page with discussion on associated talk page, and at a couple of different pages earlier. All contributions welcome!
