[Home]WikiInformationScaling

MeatballWiki | RecentChanges | Random Page | Indices | Categories

Wikis have special ways to structure information that makes wiki differ from other information formats like books, newspapers, articles, or blogs, even websites. Probably this is caused by the way wikis are used and how they develop and grow. The main hypothesis of this page is that there is a correspondence with LEVELS OF SCALE that ChristopherAlexander lists as one of 15 fundamental properties of living systems. If that is true, then a proper understanding of WikiInformationScaling might improve the growth process of wikis and maybe shed additional light on successful real world information structures.

Hypothesis: Many wiki phenomena can be described as paired items A and B that correspond in meaning and that have useful geometrical proportions.
