Jimbo: collaboration isn’t about stabbing each other, it’s about helping each other with the softest security possible; not locked down.
Me: the key thing to collaboration is coming to a consensus regarding community norms, then making those norms clear for all to see.
Jimbo’s done. Lots of applause. We’re already running 12 mins late, so q+a will continue in a breakout session.
The gist: there’s a gold mine in every community where there’s a pubcasting station: people. Smart, creative, talented people creating UGC.
I’ll have to show Jimbo the Wiki Wiki Teriyaki Restaurant in Austin: http://tinyurl.com/3bwvqh
Jimbo: the culture of collaboration. Try designing a restaurant.
retweeting @toddmundt, channeling Jimbo: quality is improved by openness and collaboration - big point that we can’t let slip by
Is anyone watching the live stream of Jimbo? How’s it working so far? http://integratedmedia.org/
Showing off Wikia’s user-generated search results, magazine cover showing him as “Google’s worst nightmare.”
And those independent voices will keep creating great stuff whether we recognize them or not - so why aren’t we reaching out to them?
Mark Taylor of kqed.org talking about user-generated cultural content.
Gallery Crawl: monthly vlog interviewing Bay Area art galleries and artists. Each vid takes 4 hrs to research, 6 to shoot, 12 to edit.
Most of kqed’s bloggers already blog on their own, so they have some experience and can promote what they’re doing with kqed.
KQED pays 12 blogs $35 blogs a post for local cultural/arts coverage. Not much, but these are obsessive culture fiends who love what they do
Debra May Hughes of Public Interactive is up. She should be introducing Jimbo momentarily.
Woah, I’m #1 on Tweeterboard today. That won’t last. :-) http://tweeterboard.com/top-100
Jimbo: Wikipedia began with the idea of imaging a world in which every single person on the planet is given free access to all knowledge.
Jimbo’s peering over my shoulder; now he’s up to the stage.
Debra May: Jimbo is a “true American entrepreneur” for founding Wikipedia, embodying what we strive for in public broadcasting.
Jimbo: Wikipedia is a freely licensed encyclopedia written by thousands of volunteers in many languages.
