Tiga hari, 200 perbincangan, kini selesai.
Bayangkan sebuah dunia di mana setiap manusia bebas berkongsi dalam jumlah pengetahuan yang banyak. #wikimania2014
Apakah itu Wikimania?
Wikimania 2014 was a 2000+ person conference, festival, meetup, workshop, hackathon, and celebration, spread over five days in August 2014, preceded and followed by fringe events. Wikimania is the official annual event of the Wikimedia movement, where one can discover all kinds of projects that people are making with wikis and open content, as well as meet the community that produced the most famous wiki of all, Wikipedia!
Kemas kini tahunan di projek Wikimedia
Wikipedia is a household name — in fact, it’s now one of the five most popular websites in the world, clocking over 21 billion hits every month. With over 110m pages across 287 languages, and a dozen sister projects including dictionaries, newspapers, multimedia repositories and travelguides, it's come a long way since its founding in 2001; the community has grown, the technology has developed, and the organisation has matured. However, there are still sweeping changes to come. more…
Bagaimana masyarakat dalam talian membuka kunci potensi manusia?
Once upon a time 'machines' were programmed by programmers and used by users. The success of the Web has changed this relationship: we now see configurations of people interacting with content and with each other, blurring the line between computations performed by machine logic and algorithms, and those that result from input by humans, arising from their own psychological processes and life experience. Rather than drawing a line through such Web-based systems to separate the human and digital parts (as computer science has traditionally done), we can now draw a line around them and treat each such compound as a 'social machine', a machine in which the two aspects are seamlessly interwoven. Of course Wikipedia is one of these, but what others? How can such systems be designed from scratch, and to what ends? lagi…
Masa Depan Pendidikan
Kini Wikipedia telah menyiapkan kerja rumah semua orang, apa yang tinggal untuk dipelajari?
To the exasperation of many teachers, Wikipedia is the first port of call for millions of students from primary school to university. Its sheer convenience is challenging standard pedagogical approaches that implicitly assume information is scarce and difficult to duplicate. What if teachers asked students to contribute to Wikipedia instead? lagi…
Apa yang kita boleh bina apabila sejumlah semua pengetahuan manusia adalah mesin yang dapat dibaca?
Wikidata adalah satu projek baru Yayasan Wikimedia: pangkalan data percuma, kerjasama, berbilang bahasa, sekunder, mengumpul struktur data untuk beri sokongan untuk Wikipedia, Wikimedia Commons, projek Wikimedia lain dan selain itu. Ini mungkin menjadi salah satu tempat simpan data terbuka terbaik di Bumi — apa yang boleh kita lakukan dengan ia? lagi…
Apa yang berlaku apabila pinggir pemotongan pengetahuan manusia boleh didapati untuk semua?
In 2013 alone over 500,000 pieces of scholarly research were made open access, across all disciplines — an unprecedented number. These are all citable in Wikipedia, meaning they can be integrated into the encyclopaedia, contextualised and made discoverable by anyone in the world with an internet connection. This level of accessibility of cutting edge research has never existed before in history, and the possible outcome of empowering citizen scientists and opening up academia in this way is beyond reckoning. lagi…
Mestikah semua media taksub dengan komersial?
Media performs an essential political, social, economic, and cultural function in modern democracies. In such societies, media are the principal source of political information and access to public debate, and the key to an informed, participating, self-governing citizenry. Democracy requires a media system that provides people with a wide range of opinion and analysis and debate on important issues, reflects the diversity of citizens, and promotes public accountability of the powers-that-be and the powers-that-want-to-be. There is a growing sense that the growth of the Internet has not paid the democratic dividends that it could. more…
