This session was about editing rich media (audio, video, structured data) in a wiki way.
+ wikitravel guy (Evangelo Prodromou) wanted editing of SVG images
+ interested in open content
+ inputdraw: free for noncommercial use
+ hand-illustrated maps may be useful, not to geo scale
+ Dan: usefulness of having a very particular app (wikitravel)
+ wikitravel use case: collaboratively edited video of a "tour of Montreal"
- jumpcut (no collaboration)
- kino: video editing
- http://epresence.tv - open source webcasting conference publishing
- SMIL: XML answer to realplayer. playlist control editor.
- IDEA: Just edit the playlists
- Only valuable for large projects? Documentaries?
- Many more video producers than talented video editors
- me: String together YouTube videos?
- http://dotsub.com/ - open subtitling of movies
- Some movies in the 40s and 50s dropped into public domain
- There's a guy who dubs old Russian movies in the public domain into Esperanto and sells them to the Esperanto community.
- HTML wikis (WYSIWYG wikis)
+ tiki diff (post-parsed) works great except for tables, but this was hand-coded
+ not around yet because "we can get away with it" (i.e. community doesn't demand it)
+ Wiki syntax focuses you on content
- "Wikis are more than just a bunch of Google docs with links between them"
- If we don't do WYSIWYG, there will be an end-around run and our culture will be lost
- If we don't do video editing, there will be an end-around run ...
- Structured data
+ Wikicalc - Dan Brinklin
+ Semantic mediawiki - Semantic markup
+ Evan: fields won't change much over time
- Andreas Gohr: database of available plugins
+ had closed list of fields
