Tim Berners-Lee’s intended the web to be writeable by all. Yet, for decades it’s been stuck in a “read mostly” mode. Everyone web surfs, some add content but very few really get to fundamentally re-express and re-structure web content. We know this. We wiki. Problem is, many don’t.
It is hoped that the icon will draw contributions to wiki-based sites, by serving as a reminder to how changeable they are.
It is presently implemented on:
- Moin Moin 1.7
- Socialtext hosted
- TikiWiki 1.10
- TWiki 4.2

My thanks to Mark Dilley of AboutUs.org for the reminder to post about it today.
