TiddlyWiki at OpenTech 2008

leave a comment »

Along with several of my Osmonaught colleagues, I will be attending OpenTech 2008 in London on Saturday July 5th 2008. It’s a very low cost event (£5 to get in!), and is focussed nicely on the hacker community. I went to the last one in 2005 and had a great time.

This time, I’m giving a talk entitled “TiddlyWiki Tales” which will be a round-up the latest TW developments, both from Osmosoft and the wider community. Later on in the day, my colleague Paul Downey is talking about “The Web as Agreement“.

We’re also holding a competition with a TiddlyWiki flavour and some interesting prizes:

The TiddlyWiki OpenTech competition gives you the chance to win a BUG (plus four modules)! The BUG base station and modules use open source software and snap together to create whatever device you want. There’s also a great second prize of a GP2X Linux powered handheld games console. A stack of O’Reilly books will be the third prize.

For your chance to win one of these great prizes, all you have to do is show us your TiddlyWiki skills. TiddlyWiki is written entirely in javascript, and has a great plugin architecture, so just like the BUG you can twist it to do whatever you want. It can pull in RSS feeds, and because it can be a local file (and you don’t have to worry about same domain policies), it’s great for mashups. There are already 400+ plugins you can use, but don’t let that stop you from writing your own new ones!

(See the Osmosoft site for full details).
