Transcript of "Confluence as Personal Wiki"

  1. 1. ATLASSIAN CONFLUENCE AS A PERSONAL WIKI “While you may not be able to develop a photographic memory, there are some things you can do to improve your 'memory'.” [ http://www.exforsys.com/career-center/memory-skills/photographic-memory.html ]
  2. 2. WHY A PERSONAL WIKI ANYWAY? “Knowledge-based industries come to represent ever-larger portions of the global economy, the importance of knowledge increases for knowledge-based corporations, institutions, and organizations as a source of competitive advantage.quot; - Drucker 1992 “But I'm not a company, WTF?!” Not quite, but: quot;As the lifetime of knowledge decreases, the necessity for lifelong learning increases. Knowledge is becoming ever more important as an individual good, a social resource, and an economic agent of production.” - Drucker 1994, Reinmann-Rothmeier 2000; Reinmann-Rothmeier & Mandl, 1999 And: “Knowledge workers need techniques to sort, analyse and archive relevant information to handle and use today's flood of information.” - Hube 2005
  3. 3. THERE ARE SO MANY WIKIS – WHY CONFLUENCE? Coming to think of it, I'm using Confluence as a personal Wiki... For an exhaustive list of Wiki-Software check: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_wiki_software
  4. 4. ...because I love it. Ok, the world doesn't revolve around me, so let's look at the facts that might make you love your Confluence personal Wiki as well...
  5. 5. THE POWER OF CONFLUENCE I Easy to install: ● Creation of different Wiki-Spaces: ● Dynamic Task Lists: ●
  6. 6. THE POWER OF CONFLUENCE II PDF Export: ● Search includes Attachments: ● You can tag Sites in your Wiki-Spaces: ● There's a Blogging Functionality ●
  7. 7. THE POWER OF CONFLUENCE III Easy WYSIWYG Editor: ● Powerful but easy to learn Wiki-Syntax: ● - Similar to HTML, e.g. h1. to h6. for Headlines - Macros such as {panel} to design a Wiki page Easy Table of Contents: ●
  8. 8. HOW YOU COULD USE IT Jot down the Gist of Non-Fiction Books, articles, etc. ● This way: - You don't have to remember everything - You wont't have to browse your notepad to look for the page where you actually wrote it down - A notepad is not “searchable” Organize your life: ● - If you're working on several projects, create a Wiki-Space for each one and leverage the power of Confluence - If you're on a call or in a meeting, you can save your minutes to your Wiki instead of taking “traditional notes” HOW I'M CURRENTLY USING IT I'm trying to write Master's thesis with it ;-) ●
