A wiki as alternative to current Quality document structure

Quality is one my few trades. I started out in Metrology then progressed into (after I majored in) Quality. Over the last, what, 10 years I specialized increating and maintaining databases while remaining in Quality. I’ve had the chance to follow closely the evolution of the internet from its, now old, 1.0 format to the 2.0 one.

Wikis, to me, represent the ultimate form of collaboration as they synthesize just about anything there is when one considers having multiple contributors working together (from them communicating to the end result, whatever that may be).

Wikimedia Foundation employee ousted over paid editing [@joemullin for arstechnica.com]

The Wikimedia Foundation, the non-profit which owns Wikipedia, has apparently terminated an employee who was engaged in editing for pay. The issue of editing for pay has been a hot topic among Wikipedia editors, and it resulted in hundreds of account terminations a few months ago.

The employee, Sarah Stierch, was a \”program evaluation coordinator\” who was often quoted by journalists writing about Wikipedia, especially on the topic of how to get more women participating as editors. She was hired by the foundation in April 2013, where she was one of about 180 employees. Before that she had a paid fellowship at the foundation, where she did things like oversee an \”edit-a-thon\” in which editors worked to create new articles on under-recognized female historical figures.

Wikimedia\’s Senior Director of Programs, Frank Schulenberg, wrote a message on a public Wikipedia mailing list last night explaining why Stierch and the foundation had parted ways.

New draft feature provides a gentler start for Wikipedia articles — Wikimedia blog

For most of Wikipedia’s history, we encouraged editors to create new encyclopedia articles by publishing immediately. Just find a page that doesn’t exist, type in content, and after you hit save, it’s shared with the world. This helped Wikipedia grow to the millions of articles it has now, but the project has matured in many ways, and we need additional tools for creating great new encyclopedia articles.

Starting on the English-language Wikipedia, all users (registered or anonymous) now have the option to start drafts before publishing. A draft simply has “Draft:” before the title of the page you’re creating, like this example. Drafts are not visible to readers using Wikipedia’s default search nor in external search engines such as Google, though you may find them using the advanced search options.

Online CV is good, maximising its visibility is better

I once wrote about the other CV one could build, on account of extra skills one acquires along one’s professionnal life. I also wrote about using one’s email (in my case gmail) as, also, an online bookmarking service. The idea behind the latter is this: using a service not only for what it’s meant to primarily provide but also for what it could do as well (with the supplementary advantage to not having to create yet another account on yet another plateform).

Or try doing it, rather, like I have in this past year here in France and a few years ago while I was an expat in Finland. Ou essayer de le faire, plutôt, comme je l’ai fait dans cette année …

passée en France et quelques années auparavant pendant que j’étais expat en Finlande.

I already expressed my frustration over attempts that miserably failed at work. That didn’t prevent me from hoping I would succeed one day, at least I’m learning as I am trying over and over again.

J’ai déjà exprimé ma frustration à propos d’essais qui ont échoué misérablement au travail. Cela ne m’a pas empêché d’espérer que je réussirais un jour, au moins j’apprends pendant que j’essaie encore et encore.

Australia’s University of Southern Queensland launches the first OERu prototype – WikiEducator

AST1000 is a first-year level course in International Relations and the Social Sciences on the books of the Faculty of Arts at the University of Southern Queensland (USQ). The course will provide basic information about, and analysis of, contemporary regional relationships, current affairs and societies in Asia and the Pacific, including Australia and New Zealand. Attention will be given to the personal and social skills that will facilitate better international cooperation and cross cultural communication in Asia and the Pacific.

“The world-first program that is being offered by USQ will help considerably the learning for students from regions where access and equity, due to circumstance, geography or income has sometimes been an obstacle to education” said Professor Thomas. “In keeping with USQ’s promise for personalised learning, the on-line course will allow students to study anywhere and at any time with access to a panel of international academic volunteers who will provide tutorial support, guidance and leadership. It’s part of what USQ does best.”

Is social status anti 2.0 ? | Est-ce que le statut social n’est pas anti 2.0 ? « plerudulier

This recession forces companies to slash costs. Whether this is done the right way or not is for me to discuss but there is a particular field where this might prove to be instrumental in changing behaviors as well as saving money.

Cette récession oblige les entreprises à réduire les coûts. Il ne m’appartient pas de discuter que cela se fasse dans la bonne ou de la mauvaise façon mais il y a un domaine particulier où cela pourrait contribuer à changer les comportements ainsi que d’économiser de l’argent.

14 Wiki CMS To Help You Build Your Own Wikipedia

Wikis are a rare breed of websites – we all would agree on that. Designing a portfolio, corporate blog or any such website is an entirely different concept from designing wikis. When it comes to wikis, not only does the website ‘rise’ in terms of its size, but also in terms of complexity. Wikis need to be so designed that the finished website does not look clumsy or unorganized – no matter how much data it has, and at the same time is simple enough for even the most novice user to understand. Following that, and perhaps most importantly, wikis need to be edited not by an individual but an entire community – again, simplicity and ease of use come into play!

TeachPaperless: The Wikipedia Dilemma

This school year, millions of students will participate in the time-honored tradition of writing research papers. They will formulate a thesis statement and seek out evidence from reliable sources that supports their claims. In recent years, this seemingly straightforward premise has been complicated by the definition of what constitutes reliable sources.

 

Cette année scolaire, des millions d’étudiants participeront à la longue tradition de l’écriture des documents de recherche. Ils formuleront un énoncé de thèse et de recherche des preuves provenant de sources fiables qui soutient ce qu’ils avancent.Ces dernières années, cette prémisse apparemment simple a été compliquée par la définition de ce qui constitue des sources fiables.
