Wikimania 2006 – Troll Talk

One of the most interesting sessions of Wikimania 2006 were the Lightning Talks (five minute speedy presentations, somewhere between a brain fart and a quick demo). I moderated two rounds of them, and learned about Webaroo‘s offline Wikipedia, Yurik’s Query.php, Yellowikis, Azerbaijani and Serbian Wikipedia writing system issues, among many other things. (I will post my Lightning Talk on “Using Wikipedia Efficiently”, as promised).

But what takes the prize is Domas’s talk about “How to Read Wikipedia.” Only a few dozen people at Wikimania had the pleasure of hearing it. Fortunately, I have a recording of it for posterity.

  2. I missed out, this badge should have said “*the* troll. Thanks for the good laugh.

    PS. Totally unrelated, the lines around the fields for comments are way too pale for me to see them on my screen. Kind of weird writing in limbo.

  4. Greetings! I know this is kinda off topic but I’d figured I’d ask. Would you be interested in trading links or maybe guest authoring a blog article or vice-versa? My blog addresses a lot of the same subjects as yours and I believe we could greatly benefit from each other. If you might be interested feel free to send me an e-mail. I look forward to hearing from you! Awesome blog by the way!

  5. Howdy, i read your blog occasionally and i own a similar one and i was just wondering if you get a lot of spam remarks? If so how do you reduce it, any plugin or anything you can suggest? I get so much lately it’s driving me crazy so any assistance is very much appreciated.

  6. I’ve been surfing online more than three hours today, yet I never found any interesting article like yours. It’s pretty worth enough for me. Personally, if all web owners and bloggers made good content as you did, the web will be a lot more useful than ever before.

  7. ?Well it was quite a excellent blog post.Thanks for writing this kind of information and facts with us.I am hoping you will continue enlightening folks in future also,with the help of such a beneficial information.Carry on the excellent task.

  8. They strive to make the best unlock & jailbreak iPhone 5 iOS 7 or 7.0.4 resources available to the customers and readers, regardless of their technical background. The most knowledgeable points of interest are iPhone and iPad Jailbreak and Unlock.
