Inspirational Reading: User Contribution Stats
I think it's a good time to think big and brainstorm about possibilities for the future, e.g. what effect might semantic technologies have on Orthodox KM? I'd love to hear other people's thoughts on this (here or at [ OrthodoxWeb Dev]). <br /> [[User:FrJohn|FrJohn]]
:To resurrect this discussion, first let me ask what ''was'' OrthodoxWeb Dev? On to the point: I've mentioned some Christian wiki collaboration ideas on my user page. It includes ideas mainly about sharing common resources and information across the Christian "wikiverse". We all have different beliefs about God, but I think that we can at least create a central community to discuss ''how'' we can improve each of our wikis and share the information that we do agree on. --[[User:RockOfVictory|RockOfVictory]] 14:54, August 10, 2006 (CDT)

:From page 2:
::"What makes the model work is not only the collective knowledge and effort of a far-flung labor force, but also the willingness to abide by two core principles. The first: neutrality. All articles should be written without bias. Wikipedians are directed not to take a stand on controversial subjects like abortion or global warming but to fairly represent all sides. The second principle is good faith. All work should be approached with the assumption that the author is trying to help the project, not harm it.
::"Wikipedia represents a belief in the supremacy of reason and the goodness of others. In the Wikipedia ideal, people of goodwill sometimes disagree. But from the respectful clash of opposing viewpoints and the combined wisdom of the many, something resembling the truth will emerge. Most of the time."'':Of course, not all of this applies here. We have out our own interpretation of neutrality and the role of reason, but it's worth noting the basic similarities between our project and Wikipedia. [[User:FrJohn|Fr.
