One active wiki that was already mentioned in this group:
http://occupytogether.wikispot.org/

Not saying this is the best one, and we should consider them all, but
I am all for not re-inventing the wheel or being redundant.

Just following this one Google Group is already time intensive. We need
Groups as part of our taxonomy, but we also need to provide for ambient
findabillity of items as people browse.

The new web site will enable:

1) seeing every new change real time in the "Activity" tab with links to the
person and the thing, e.g. An event or Doc

2) drilling down through groups

3) navigating through "group tags" and other tags which may be shared across
groups, docs, etc. The tags help to provide ambient findability. These tags
are non-hierarchical and thus provide numerous paths to traverse the network
of things being created in the site.

Next version, I'd like to see Projects, minimally identified, tagged and
linked to wherever people want to manage their projects. I envision Projects
as cross group endeavors. E.g. The Media Group might produce video, but
Education might use the video as part of an event.

I think one wiki with sections (and promoted as such) will help reinforce
the theme of unity.
If we go down the road of each group having its own wiki and forum and

blog, we may lose that.> In no way am I trying to be divisive or exclusive, but what will happen we

start getting groups for out of work bricklayers and groups for librarians
against quiet spaces? We are all in this to make everyone's life easier and
by creating small groups we create the sense that we acknowledge that some
of us are more or less oppressed.> /opinion

Version 2.0, which we will demo tomorrow night uses a Docs plugin for

BuddyPress Groups written by Boone Gorges. Each Working Group can thus have
their own collection of Wiki-like Docs in an interface that is seamless with
the WordPress Platform. An "Activity Stream" (like the Facebook Wall) will
show any thing that has happenned across all of the Groups in a real time
stream.

Just to keep everyone informed:

Outreach started a wiki here:

http://owsoutreach.pbworks.com/w/page/46570265/FrontPage

However, from the e-mail traffic on the internet group it seems like a

lot of the info we were going to put there is getting baked into the new
website.  Colin is also in discussion with CRM providers to serve the
in-house needs of a large scale organizing effort.

I was going to work on the wiki but am holding off to see what ends up

being on the site.  If a wiki still makes senses I'm willing to assist in
loading info and maintaining it.

Cheers,
Christian

We've been discussing a wiki for a while.  They're easy to start

(technically) but hard to maintain (community organizing).

I've been doing some wiki'ing here:

http://p2pfoundation.net/Occupy_Wall_Street

I have no doubt a wiki would be tremendously useful but I have yet to

find someone interested in bottomlining the community organizing, site
management and information structuring.  Kate, are you interested?  If not,
maybe we could reach out to the folks running the people's library.
Librarian-types often make great wiki'ers.

Hey Internet working group -
At the GA last night, someone suggested staring an OWS wiki, to share

information and gather resources. I don't know if this is within your
perview, but I think it is a great idea, and y'all should start it!
