I have past week with the Workshop â€œin the net of the servicesâ€? a lecture on â€œencyclopedias 21. Centuryâ€? held, in which I described Wikipedia and key word systems as innovative forms to collect and organize in the Internet knowledge. I had regenerated the relevant literature to day going systems with my student woman employee Julia property year already for the expert's assessment â€œtopic CAN in the Internetâ€?; for the lecture I could sight also some now at literature to the Wikipedia again, in order to then use it also for the book.
This covers on the one hand fundamental information for emergence and for the use of the Wikipedia, above all however three variants, as the dynamics of the kollaborativen production of an on-line encyclopedia are examined:
- Motivation-psychological work, which explains the cooperation to the Wikipedia from the individual motives of the authors; Schroer/Hertel have bspw. Factors determines, which affect the expenditure of time and the satisfaction with the own Enagegement, among them characteristics of the own tasks noticed among other things (acts one autonomously? Does own editing have a meaning for the entire work?) and the identification with the Wikipedia community.
- Network and/or item-related analyzes, how they are accomplished v.a. by Christian bar farmer; therefore participation can be explained particularly by the integration into a community of the engaged ones, thus from the connections, obligations and competencies, which takes place via growing into the circle of the â€œWikipedianerâ€?.
- Finally discourse-theoretical work examines, how articles in â€œthis-italic regimesâ€? are negotiated and how conflicts are decided on certain contents by mobilizing power resources; to it the work of Christian Pentzold, in addition, the lecture of Thomas Roessing belongs during the specialized group conference to politics 2,0 in Ilmenau.
Are there still variants, which I did not consider?
