Re: [xmca] collaborative notes and wiki during AERA


Thanks for sharing the link, and for getting this ball rolling.

For those who do not know we were going back and forth on Twitter trying to
figure out a system for collaborative note-taking. In the past it has just
been Twitter but these notes are short and not connected to the program.

We next tried Google SideWiki ( a cool toolbar that allows you to save notes
on a webpage for anyone to see). This would have worked and we were going to
use the notes attached to the public program. However, sidewiki was not
accessible on mobile browsers or tablets and requires a tool bar install.

So we settled on suggesting taking rough notes on gDocs and then formalizing
the notes on the wiki.

It would be nice for organizers to be thinking about collaborative
note-taking in long term planning and building apps that allow for
previewing programs as well as public notes.

Mark, as someone missing the conference. The wiki has been a wonderful
resource. It is also interesting to see how many more folks are on Twitter
this year compared to last.
