Mail2Wiki: Low-cost sharing and early curation from email to wikis Corporate wikis

C and T 2011 - 5th International Conference on Communities and Technologies, Conference Proceedings English 2011 In this design paper we motivate and describe the Mail2Wiki system, which enables low-cost sharing and early curation from email to wikis by knowledge workers. We aim to aid adoption of enterprise wikis and enable more efficient knowledge sharing and reuse. We present a design rationale grounded in prior empirical work, the design of the system, and the evaluation of the user interface. The system includes two alternative front-ends to enable incremental adoption by workers who are currently using email to share with their communities. 0 0

Sharing
International Conference on Intelligent User Interfaces, Proceedings IUI English 2011 Enterprise wikis commonly see low adoption rates, preventing them from reaching the critical mass that is needed to make them valuable. The high interaction costs for contributing content to these wikis is a key factor impeding wiki adoption. Much of the collaboration among knowledge workers continues to occur in email, which causes useful information to stay siloed in personal inboxes. In this demo we present Mail2Wiki, a system that enables easy contribution and initial curation of content from the personal space of email to the shared repository of a wiki. 0 0

Conference on Human Factors in Computing Systems - Proceedings English 2011 Knowledge workers who maintain corporate wikis face high costs for organizing and updating content on wikis. This problem leads to low adoption rates and compromises the utility of such tools in organizations. We describe a system that seeks to reduce the interactions costs of updating and organizing wiki pages by combining human and machine intelligence. We then present preliminary results of an ongoing lab-based evaluation of the tool with knowledge workers. 0 0

Wikipedia
WikiSym English 2009 Prior research on Wikipedia has characterized the growth in content and editors as being fundamentally exponential in nature, extrapolating current trends into the future. We show that recent editing activity suggests that Wikipedia growth has slowed, and perhaps plateaued, indicating that it may have come against its limits to growth. We measure growth, population shifts, and patterns of editor and administrator activities, contrasting these against past results where possible. Both the rate of page growth and editor growth has declined. As growth has declined, there are indicators of increased coordination and overhead costs, exclusion of newcomers, and resistance to new edits. We discuss some possible explanations for these new developments in Wikipedia including decreased opportunities for sharing existing knowledge and increased bureaucratic stress on the socio-technical system itself. 0 13
