  • introduce the players. note how vish is playing hard to get
  • going to guess you don’t have to mention the W’s. they’ll catch on.
  • I know this is not an “approved” vision statement. Edit at will.Aiming to construct the largest crowdsourced database on the ethical and sustainable activities of companies. -Sources, claims, summaries
  • could show three cards (a company, a topic, and an analysis). I was thinking just to say that that there was a separate car for the others.
  • point out that this is zooming out on analysis from previous page to show where the summary comes from
  • alonovo, osoeco
  • Knowledge management project; public shared knowledge base about grant making-Ward Cunningham invented the first wiki,spoke at the Connectipedia launch
  • Proposal submission and review tool
  • image of wikirate page
  • image of gear menu
  • point out all the syntax on Wikipedia. You can lead to next slide by saying that Wagn Editors don’t learn syntax; that’s for Wagneers.
  • I wouldn’t try to get into the details of these. Idea is to convey a clean, logical ordering in a way that will appeal to techies.I might, however,explain that you’re seeing all the rules that apply to the Apple logo cardnote that I never get into the compound names (plus cards). I think that will derail the presentation
  • idea is for this to be a teaser, not to involve a lot of explaining. instead of going through the items, I would just use this space to convey something about your experience of wagneeringWQL = Wagn Query Language
  • http://wagn.org/MoVE_beyond_MVCMove stands for:Mo = ModelV = ViewsE = EventsMaybe read the blog, see whether it makes sense, and send me questions?
  • what makes the technology juicy?data atoms – the “everything is a card” mantradistribution – the plans for “WagNet” will make it so that you can seamlessly use cards from other sitesintegration – unlike Drupal/Wordpress modules, Wagn mods add no custom structure, so they can connect well even with unknown mods
  • Context shift: drupal or wordpress: have to go to separate admin area; vs. in wagn edit in place; and then also; all the rules are accessible from the page you are onTracked and reversible: all the rules and sets have revision history… No custom low-level structures… vs. customiseddrupal nodes or wordpress nodes; sometimes nodes don’t connect…; cards can connect more easily
