Organizing documents like playing Lego™

In computer sciencetransclusion is the inclusion of part or all of anelectronic document into one or more other documents by reference.

I found out, recently, about what it really meant to implement ‘transclusion’ while tinkering with Tiddlywiki. In addition to using the feature it kept going round in my head that the concept could also be used elsewhere.

I can’t believe that over the years I have maintained this blog I haven’t written once about TiddlyWiki. In a nutshell it’s a non linear personal web notebook… which doesn’t mean much to many I suppose. There’s no point copying and pasting here descriptions of what it does there, right ? Makes more sense to explain what it does for me and how I use it.

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).
