generalizes the concept of a WikiForum, where the contributions are intentionally distributed and interlinked between several Wiki:WikiForums. It abstracts from the fact that there is not (yet) a 'universal code' Wiki:InterWiki engine that makes the transitions seamless.
This idea is not a merely theoretical one. You can see and work on one example in its earliest phase: [SeedWiki:DistributedMathSongsWiki].
Who knows similar, possibly full-flegded examples, to learn from?
- avoids the GodKing role
- builds on the strengths of each of its component Wiki
- provides richer start-up context
- activates a community search for an existing solution
- The current InterWiki infrastructure is in an early state, that complicates the interlinking, especially the AccidentalLinking functionality.
I guess you mean Wiki:InterWiki.
No, the author really means the forum (seen as community aspect), dispite the absence of a unifying engine . In the meantime we can use the available intermediary tools to compensate for the lack of a DistributedWikiEngine. An AnnotationWiki is one way to build a DistributedWikiForum.
Thank you for the hint, causing me to reformulate the intro of this page -- fp
