“Writing WoWWiki: Collaboration, Conversation, and Composition in an Online Community of Writers.”
This book-in-progress argues that the affordances of the wiki have created conditions in which different values and beliefs about text production and ownership are necessary. In a situation in which writers and readers can, and often must, take on both identities, contributors need to acquire a similar mindset if their collaborations are to succeed. The book closely considers, for example, how collaborative practices and the wiki emerge out of the social web and illustrates how writing practices on WoWWiki are both technologically and socially inflected. The technological (i.e., the design of MediaWiki) and the social (i.e., the community’s norms) work together to shape writing practices and blur the line between what it means to be a writer and reader—redefining key terms in writing studies such as audience and authorship. Accordingly, the book argues for a hypersocial-interactive model of wiki-mediated writing that augments past, print-based, models of audience and notions of authorship in a time and context where writers are many. 7 chapters projected. 5 drafted to date.
