There’s not many humans on the planet that know more about wikis that Stewart Mader. Wherever folks are talking about wiki technology, you’ll find Mader, explaining how wikis work, how to get folks to use them, how to govern them, and how to use them to solve various real-world challenges. Mader was recently interviewed by Tom Johnson for his popular TechWriterVoices podcast. And, his book, Wikipatterns: A Practical Guide to Improving Productivity and Collaboration in Your Organization is a must read for anyone serious about using wikis in the workplace.

Mader recently spoke at Documentation and Training West 2008 in Vancouver, BC. His presentations were well-attended and highly rated. Scott Nesbitt provides a brief review of his presentations on the DMN Communications blog. His slide decks are included below for your review.
