Feedback on TWikiPresentation20May2003

-- PeterThoeny - 20 May 2003

Great presentation! Some minor comments - there's a typo in link to the presentation page on Slide 44, points to 30May2001. Also, the link to TWikiInstallations has a typo in the link text.

-- RichardDonkin - 21 May 2003

Thanks for catching this, is fixed.

PS: The write protection is kind of un-Wiki like, I did it to keep the presentation as it was on the meeting.

-- PeterThoeny - 21 May 2003

I agree — a great presentation! (I read through slide 19 and skimmed the remainder.) My local LUG (LVLUG (Lehigh Valley)) has asked me several times to explain what a wiki or TWiki is and I think my answers have always been inadequate — I'll refer them to this link and see if they say "Ahha!".

Two minor points:

  • On slide 11 (re wiki), I don't understand the difference between the first two points — am I missing something or are they redundant? If not redundant, do you need another word or two to make the distinction clear? The two points:
    • "Every page can be edited, using just a browser"
    • "Read-write web, every page can be edited using just a browser"

  • Looked up "nevertheless" and it is a valid word and apparently the correct spelling (rather than "never-the-less") but it seems somewhat jarring to my eye — you might want to think about a substitute.

Great stuff! You've saved a lot of people a lot of work time and long explanations. "Nevertheless" is fine by me.

Re Richard's first point, I still get the wrong date in the URL on slide 44.

-- SueBlake - 03 Jun 2003

Oops, link to topic with incorrect date is fixed.

Randy, the two bullets are duplicates.

Typo: on slide 39 last line, change "then" to "than"

Ummm, that's what the revision history is for? Just add a preface line which reads The presentation as it was when it happened. Note: I personally don't care one way or the other. I just thought I'd point out you can have your cake and eat it too in this instance. smile

Hey, thanks for the slide show!! I now have something to use, when I get my TWiki up and running, to show to my users. My friend, MarnieGustavson may or may not be excited to have been used as an example. She is a new user so it might freak her out that she made it to the slide show. Could you pick another user? Maybe make up one? Thanks.

On slide 15, New Zealand has a typo...
