Wikis as Social Networks: Evolution and Dynamics
Despite of the enormous success of wikis in public and corporate knowledge sharing projects we do not know much about the evolution and dynamics of wikis. Our approach is to analyze wikis as social networks and apply dynamic network analysis on them. In our prototypical environment we handle the complex data management problems arising when dealing with different wiki engines and different sizes of wiki dumps. The analysis and visualization of evolving wiki networks allow wiki stakeholder to research the social dynamics of their wikis.
