Wiki Interface Design Considerations

by September 26, 2007

At the Beauty & the Beast of Wiki panel, I walked through several Wiki design considerations.

I’ve also posted notes from the panel discussion with wiki software providers Wet Paint, Mind Touch, Atlassian, Brain Keeper, and Zoho about Wiki usability issues.
