Developing Wikis for Collective Knowledge
Online via Zoom — Register Here!
In this workshop, we will discuss how information sharing platforms reflect community values and then put these ideas into practice as we create an experimental wiki website. Covering the basics of building and contributing to wiki-based websites, there is room for more advanced participants to explore the technical aspects of wiki development. While Wikipedia is the most famous wiki, the skills learned here can apply to any website based on the wiki format.

Zeesy Powers is interested in the unspoken codes that structure our society. Current specifics: minimal-tech interventions, future uses of old technology, deepfakes, storage-based cryptocurrencies, sustainable hardware practices, misleading UI. Her soon-to-be-released documentary short Omiwatari looks at the ancient climate records of Tenaga Shrine at Lake Suwa, Nagano, and the cultural losses of climate change.
