Free software and social networking

Today at Wikia we have released our social networking features for MediaWiki under the GNU GPL 2.0. The best place to see this running live is at Halopedia, our Halo site.

I am excited about all the stuff going on in this space. With google’s open social initiative, our work in social search and social networking for mediawiki, I think the whole wiki/free culture space is about to get a whole lot more interesting.

  1. Hi Jimmy,

    I think the social revolutions that are taking place on the internet are unbelievable, and very inspiring. I think people have to take a big chunk out of wikipedia’s mentality of letting the masses decide and do the ground work, rather than relying upon the “elite” to monopolise information. I would be interested to know exactly what you meant by the “wiki/free culture space is about to get a whole lot more interesting”
