Hi, I was at OSNCamp in San Fran last fall (as were several other RCC folks). I met Paul Horan there. He has been tracking our conversations here, and he asked me to make this announcement:


A Call for Participation

(or some good feedback as a hopeful minimum)


Envisioning wiki-enabled contests as gifts for future generations (1) ...

Generally, let's explore what kinds of support-systems (socio-tech infrastructures, collective tool-sheds for designer-participants, etc.) are necessary for such open-contests to contribute to robust sustainability in general and human thrivability (2) in particular.

Specifically, open-contests aiming to produce best-in-class learning resources for young Students can serve as decent organizing principles for designing such wiki-enabled support systems.

And more specifically, focusing such contests via lenses like "ecosystems studies" (3) and "being a good ancestor" (4) can help anyone/everyone learn what's actually sustainable.

Assuming we humans are capable of passionately contributing both good will and original thought to the design of our evolutionary guidance systems (5), then let's have fun collaborating on the design and delivery of such contests and the kinds of open support-systems that enrich our global/local public good ... the kinds of supportive efforts for which all folks 7 generations from now are likely to say something like:

"Wow!!! I'm so grateful we humans started enjoying wiki-enabled contests back in 2009!"

(1) thanks West Churchman

(2) thanks Jean Russell

(3) thanks Arnie Schultz

(4) thanks Michael Maranda

(5) thanks Bela H. Banathy

    • You can open and close cards in place. Just click on the
      4296 medium
    • Use the menu above an edit box to make text bold, italics, bullet points; create headers (paragraph, Heading 1, Heading 2); etc.
    • All links require double brackets around them.
    • Named links require a vertical bar (|) between the link and the name.
    • Most HTML in normal cards will get stripped. To edit it, click on the HTML button at the right edge of the editing toolbar. Any HTML can be added using HTML cards (you'll have to be signed in to create/edit them).

    To learn more see the Wagn documentation. Common curiousities:

    If you have questions about using this wiki, you might reach someone live on Internet Relay Chat, or you can contact the Wagn guys by various means, or just ask your question here and someone will answer it shortly:

    Q: How do you communicate on a wiki like this - is there a space like MediaWiki's talk page?

    A: This is typically done in Wagn by including a +discussion card — fandom is an example here; for an explanation, see Common Wagn patterns. Of course you can also leave comments on the card itself, old-school wiki style.

    Q: How can I edit the Menu and Help cards?

    A: You can double-click in any card to edit it.

    Q: Is there notification for +discussion cards?

    A: Alas, not yet. It is high on our list.

    Q: How can I upload a pdf?

    A: Create a New Card (there's a link at the very top of every page), and set it's card type to File. Then click on the Browse... button to upload the pdf.

    Q: How do I edit a previous version to achieve a page revert? --MarkDilley

    A: In the Changes tab of every card you can go through different versions and click on Save as current when you find the version you want to revert to.

    Q: I'm an old member, what happened to my name and password?

    A: If you try to sign in, you'll see an interface to reset your password if you've forgotten it. If you don't remember what email address you used, leave a note here and we'll try to help.

    Q: How do I change my password?

    A: In the Options tab on your home card.

    Q: On the main page, after clicking "edit" I had to scroll way down (about 10 screens of blank) to find the "save" and "cancel" buttons. --PeteForsyth

    A: Known bug, but we hadn't ticketed it yet; thanks!

    Q: How do you sort a list alphabetically when some items are links and some are not? (The brackets count as a different character.) --Kristin Webb-Tomson

    A: Manually — in other words ignore the brackets, and copy & paste names to where they should go.

    What do you mean manually?
    you may use any programming language, and any sorting algorithm, with a if-then-else instruction!
