WikiWednesday: Wikipedia for Journalists and Bloggers
WikiWednesday is an opportunity to learn about wikis and how to use them for improved collaboration within an existing organization, for new ventures, or worldwide.
This month we will have an introduction to research with Wikipedia focused on journalists and bloggers.
The event will cover techniques for assessing the trustworthiness of an article, delving in to just who edited what, and other tip and tricks for gleaning useful information out of the world's largest encyclopedia.
A 30 minute introductory presentation will be followed by a panel discussion featuring Wikipedia administrators Steven Walling and Pete Forsyth, and journalists Dan Cook and Abraham Hyatt (formerly of The Portland Business Journal and Oregon Business Magazine, respectively).
