= alternative concept for User-Generated Content


Description

"Community-curated works is the best term I’ve come up with so far, to describe what the Wikimedia movement is creating, and what most other wiki communities are creating too. The individual contribution is not what’s important, it’s not what makes everything work — it’s the fact that we have a community of contributors who implicitly agree to work together, to collaborate, to try and constantly improve the content.

There seems to be intentional collaboration and incidental collaboration. Wikis are almost entirely intentional collaboration. With intentional collaboration you can directly affect other people’s contributions. With incidental collaboration, the derived value is due to some software intervention in the middle, e.g. Amazon’s recommendations."
