International Development Design Summit

Very pleased to learn that the International Development Design Summit (IDDS) in Boston, running this month, will be using Appropedia for documenting their projects.

This will be a great time to experiment with ways of using wiki pages for documenting designs. My leaning is towards relying on the unstructured format of the wiki, documenting the designs in a fairly flexible way. But added to that, I see us using an infobox to help track certain features of the design, such as the heritage of the design - who has made it, how it has been used by others, and which other designs have been inspired by it.

That's fantastic! I'm especially interested in their feedback and reactions - do you have some way of capturing that? From a usability standpoint, mostly... from what I recall last year, many of the IDDS attendees didn't have much experience with computers (maybe minimal email was it), and very few had ever seen a wiki before, so it's a neat but challenging user group to work with.

Hmm... can we find out if there will be other wiki folks there? I'll be there only near the end.
