Structured Wikis at Work - Enterprise 2.0 in Action

Peter Thoeny will be speaking on Wikis at our next meeting on November
23rd at LookSmart.

A enterprise wiki enables teams to organize and share content and
knowledge in an organic and free manner, and to schedule, manage and
document their daily activities. A wiki can also be used as an
intranet where employees contribute content collaboratively, replacing
a webmaster maintained intranet.

This talk explains how wikis can be used at the workplace, including
initial rollout, social aspects and security concerns. It also
explains how teams can use TWiki, a leading open source enterprise
collaboration platform, to build tailored wiki applications supporting
their workflow and business processes. Learn how a structured wiki can
bring Enterprise 2.0 into the workplace.
