Proof of Concept: Blog + Wiki #quora #bliki #curation

with one comment

Contect Curation

I’ve been sick all week, flue. And it hasn’t stopped me for thinking big thoughts.

Connection between WordPress and MediaWiki - Bliki

I was reading “Where Have All The Flowers Gone” and suddenly stopped when I noticed that the author was using a Wiki as a blog, then I thought about it and a picture of the advantages of combining a blog and wiki together. Besides from the obvious wiki markup which can be used in the blog, also the ability for updates to wiki/blog items to be posted into the blog stream for RSS, it’s also possible to use [[wiki markup]] to create a backlog of items you may wish to blog about. I naturally googled it and discovered that the already exists as an idea:

A bliki [...] combines features from both: as with blogs, posts or articles appear in reverse chronological order on the front page, with the most recent one at the top; but editing is done in wiki style, with a version history for each page and special markup tags.

With the power of hindsight I think that the original creator missed a feature, which is also sidelined in this article. My love of folksonomy obviously requires me to question whether the addition of articles related from curation, folksonomy, tagging or social bookmarking sites would be a perfect addition to creating an all inclusive curation environment. Quora has moved fora into the bliki field, although as with a wiki it relies more on created content than on external content.

Programming Hands

Tis the season to update #del.icio.us #social #bookmarking #delicious

It looks like del.icio.us has also – like Facebook and Google – performs some interface updates, specifically to the save interface. I wonder if this extends only to the input or whether they have plans to roll out some larger update or redesign.

del.icio.us - bookmark

UPDATE: The suggestions are alphabetical, not ordered by use which makes them close to useless with pages which are bookmarked by many people.

Blogging using del.icio.us #microblogging #tagging

, as I still call it, is a social bookmarking, tagging or folksonomy site. Friends of mine and I believe folksonomy is part of the move towards a semantic web, but that’s not what I want to talk about here.

Most readers have noticed that I post my del.icio.us links to my blog, but I have been doing more than that for the people who have been paying attention. I have been adding messages in the notes section as microblog entries for my blog, giving a brief description of the context in which I found it.

This is a nice simple way to add more information to my blog, and feel the need to elaborate with pages of text.
