The Isle of Man Section of the BCS are holding a talk next week on a local initiative to build a Wiki dedicated to the Isle of Man: ManxWiki. Here’s what the talk will be about. Here’s a bit more about ManxWiki:
Wikis are information websites that allow any person to register as a user for the purpose of adding to the pages directly with their knowledge and experience on the specified subject. In the case of ManxWiki the subject is simply â€œThe Isle of Manâ€, any aspect of local life that is deemed to be of value or interest for the benefit of others.
The beauty of ManxWiki is that if you find a page that is missing data that you already know about, YOU can easily add to the page for the benefit of others.
It’s at the Claremont Hotel at 6:00pm on 12th November and we should have some refreshments available on the day. Evenings are started to get a bit colder, so a hat and coat are in order (and maybe a couple of NFL jerseys underneath), but it should be a good talk. We’ve had a couple of good talks this year, particularly focused around Internet topics, and we should have some interesting ones next year.
