Upcoming wiki talks in the central Texas area

Next week I’m presenting at the Alamo STC Chapter, giving a talk titled “A Technical Writer’s Role in Web 2.0 — Wiki-fy Your Doc Set.” It’s at the Igo Library in northwest San Antonio and you’ll want to refer to their website for directions. It’s Tuesday February 12th with the presentation starting at 7:00.

I plan to update the presentation from the last time I gave the presentation at the Austin STC chapter and I’ll post the slides to slideshare when they’re ready. I’ll take it out of Google Presentation format and go with PowerPoint since the 800 x 600 display was pretty dismal using Google Presentations. It’s too bad because sharing that presentation was so easy.

The week after next on Wednesday February 20th, the Central Texas DITA User’s Group is continuing the wiki panel discussion we started in January with three more speakers talking about their wiki experiences, including one wiki that uses DITA as source. Here are the presenters:

The networking starts at 7:00 with the panel starting at 7:30. It’s at the Freescale campus on Parmer and directions are available on the DITA wiki. I’m looking forward to this presentation as an audience member as well to learn about more wiki best practices and DITA conversions to wikitext.

    Looking fwd to viewing the slides on slideshare. I’m trying to initiate a doc project completely on the wiki, so all your thoughts would be useful.
