Visualizing recent changes in Wikipedia Data stream
Information visualization
Recent changes
Wiki
Wikipedia
Science China Information Sciences English 2013 Large wikis such as Wikipedia attract large numbers of editors continuously editing content. It is difficult to observe what editing activity goes on at any given moment, what editing patterns can be observed, and which are the currently active editors and articles. We introduce the design and implementation of an information visualization tool for data streams of recent changes in wikis that aims to address this difficulty. We also show examples of our visualizations from English Wikipedia, and present several patterns of editing activity that we have visually identified using our tool. We have evaluated our tool's usability, accuracy and speed of task performance in comparison with Wikipedia's recent changes page, and have obtained qualitative feedback from users on the pros and cons of our tool. We also present a review of the related literature. 0 0
Wikis as Digital Ecosystems: An Analysis Based on Authorship Analysis

Third IEEE International Conference on Digital Ecosystems and Technologies (DEST 2009), Istanbul, Turkey, 31 May - 3 June 2009 2009 Wikis, best represented by the popular and highly successfulWikipedia system, have established themselves as important componentsof a collaboration infrastructure. We suggest that the complex networkof user-contributors in volunteer-contributed wikis constitutes adigital ecosystem that bears all the characteristics typical of suchsystems. This paper presents an analysis supporting this notion basedon significance of authorship within the wiki. Our findings confirm thehypothesis that large volunteer-contributed wikis are digitalecosystems, and thus that the findings from the digital ecosystemsresearch stream are applicable to this type of system. 0 0

A Method for Measuring Co-authorship Relationships in MediaWiki Analysis
Co-authorship
Wiki
WikiSym English 2008 Collaborative writing through wikis has become increasingly popular in recent years. When users contribute to a wiki article they implicitly establish a co-authorship relationship. Discovering these relationships can be of value, for example in finding experts on a given topic. However, it is not trivial to determine the main co-authors for a given author among the potentially thousands who have contributed to a given author’s edit history. We have developed a method and algorithm for calculating a co-authorship degree for a given pair of authors. We have implemented this method as an extension for the MediaWiki system and demonstrate its performance which is satisfactory in the majority of cases. This paper also presents a method of determining an expertise group for a chosen topic. 5 2
