Bring a laptop or pair with a buddy to work on this hands-on workshop.

The original wiki technology was developed by Ward Cunningham in 1995 to support the Portland Pattern Repository. The project, which became formalized in the Hillside Group, followed an approach developed by Christopher Alexander at the Center for Environmental Structure at Berkeley. This platform simplified writing and reading hyperlinks between patterns, so that a pattern language could become generative.

Over the past 5 years, an open source community led by Ward has developed a technology whereby every individual could have his or her own set of wiki sites, and sharing across a federation of collaborators becomes as easy as dragging-and-dropping. The ISSS leadership has been discussing federated wiki as a potential platform on which systems literacy content might be progressed.

Individuals may choose to host wiki sites on their own web domain. Recently the Digital Life Collective (diglife.com) and the Open Learning Commons (openlearning.cc) have been piloting federated wiki as a community platform. Members in the federated wiki community have been piloting Open Science collaboration using the technology.

This workshop is an opportunity for ISSS conference attendees to explore the platform, appreciate the codevelopment of the systems sciences with pattern language, and have questions answered face-to-face. Attendees may continue to develop their knowledge and collaborate at a distance, after leaving Corvallis.

In a related keynote talk. Michael Mehaffy will be presenting a pattern language that is available on a federated wiki.
