Measuring wiki viability: an empirical assessment of the social dynamics of a large sample of wikis is a 2008 conference paper written in English by Camille Roth, Dario Taraborelli, Nigel Gilbert and published in WikiSym.
This paper assesses the content- and population-dynamics of a large sample of wikis, over a timespan of several months, in order to identify basic features that may predict or induce different types of fate. We analyze and discuss, in particular, the correlation of various macroscopic indicators, structural features and governance policies with wiki growth patterns. While recent analyses of wiki dynamics have mostly focused on popular projects such as Wikipedia, we suggest research directions towards a more general theory of the dynamics of such communities.
