Physics Wiki (IT tools for Science)
Speaker(s): Garrett Lisi
Abstract: A wiki is an excellent tool for organizing and representing human knowledge. By building a personal wiki notebook, a scientific researcher may optimally organize past and current research notes. In this brief practical introduction I will provide a guided tour of an open scientific notebook -- physicswiki.org -- and discuss the design considerations, features, and content of this open source wiki.
