Wiki of the day

Actually, two wikis of the day. The first, Volxbibel, in German; the second, CivilMedia, in English.

On Volxbibel users democratically re-write/re-translate the bible. The wiki is a workplace where each text can be edited and re-edited. After theologists and teachers have a look at the results of the various versions, a book is then published. Third version (3.0) is now on sale.

The Civil Media wiki covers the Civilmedia08 conference in Salzburg from 3-5 December 2008. “Cultures – Participation – Dialogue” invites media activists, practitioners, researchers, policy makers, community development workers and all interested to Salzburg to discuss the importance of communicty/grassroots/citizen’s/civil media, with a specific focus on intercultural dialogue in Europe.
