CommunityNext Take-Aways: PBWiki

David Weekly, Founder and CEO of PBWiki

  • Make it as easy as possible for people to put their unique information on your service
  • Provide users/contributors with tools to share that information with others
  • Let other people interact with/change the information that the user/contributor has shared
  • Provide the user/contributor with updates on when his information has changed
  • The web has matured: the relationships between 2 data objects was web 1.0 (hyperlinks); the relationships between 2 people was web 2.0 (social networks, UGC, sharing)
  • But we still need a lot of maturity wrt relationships between people and data
  • One fundamental need: How do I get alerts when information is changing?
  • RSS helps, but it doesn't take care of filtering
  • Facebook mini-feed is a step in that direction
