Wiki as computational platform

Thinking forward on #federatedwiki, rather than backwards by @wardcunningham.

[Federated wiki] is a computational platform for the collaborative construction of things that work and will continue to work as platform technology evolves underneath it.

Too much thinking about wiki as a note-taking system will just hold it back.

This response was in reference to a discussion on front-end work (for pattern language), with a recent relabelling of “wiki pages” as “cards”, in a direction to make federated wiki more understandable to novices. [ on Jan. 12, 2019, around 13:02 ET]

Over the past week, the “things that work” for Ward included an ESP8266 Sensor Server, reporting real-time changes in temperature.
