[Wiki site aims to boost patent review process]: WikiPatents? is a new website allowing community review of patents. Only problem? It's not a wiki! C.f.

March 11,2004
SocialText in The Economist - [7]. A short and interesting article, 'The Vision Thing', (available in full only to subscribers or for a one-off payment[8]). Visionaries get things wrong because they concentrate too much on the technology, and fail to take into account the way it is shaped by social forces as it spreads. Indeed, it would seem that the more wrong the original vision, the more important the technology. Perhaps the ultimate example is the internet: its power derives from the fact that its original architects, Vinton Cerf and Bob Kahn, made no assumptions at all about the ways in which it might be used, and so placed very few constraints on its development. To be sure, this �??no vision�?� vision is not much help when it comes to raising venture capital or attracting buyers for a new gizmo. But it is a powerful reminder that the ultimate yardstick for a successful technology is how well it is accepted in the marketplace�??not how well it conforms to the original vision of its proponents.

[Internet Blogs à part] in Le Figaro Magazine. ([audience details] Saturday French NewsMag?) Wikis are qualified as collaborative blogs ? (...) D'autres vont encore plus loin, avec les wikis, des blogs qui se veulent collaboratifs. Ils tirent leur nom du mot hawaïen wikiwiki qui signifie «vite» et sont utilisés par des communautés pour élaborer, par exemple, des projets collectifs. A la différence des blogs, ils peuvent être mis à jour par tous les internautes qui consultent le site. Ainsi, les visiteurs ont la possibilité de créer leur propre page. Cette pratique a connu un véritable essor dans l'univers de la création de logiciel, où chacun des informaticiens peut apporter sa contribution en temps réel. La création de blog et de wiki est aujourd'hui facilitée par des outils dédiés qui permettent de les mettre en ligne sans compétences techniques majeures.(...)

So, what should we do with this page? -- SunirShah

Time has shown that nobody cares. -- AlexSchroeder

I read the interview of Ward [linked above, April 1, 2004] and was especially fascinated by Ward seeing WikiAsScience. On SunirShah's question above, would WikiInTheNewsDiscussion? help? Any discussion on news can happen there and this page could remain what it is. --SelvakumarGanesan

Since almost every mention of wikis in the mainstream press uses WikiPedia as an example, and Wikipedia keeps track of articles mentioning it, this page is redundant. And since I'm here, what is the title of the Utne Reader article? -- StephenGilbert

I think we may as well keep a list. If there is any wiki that should, it's MeatBall. -- BayleShanks

We are actually trying to push from [WikiIndex:RecentChanges.info] to the weblog, so anyone can add stories, including from here. -- MarkDilley
