Hi there, i am Stefano Baraldi, aka MightyPanda.

I am a software designer and developer, currently graduating for a master in CS in the university of Bologna (Italy).
My thesis is called wikiWall and it's all about bridging visual knowledge building and wikiweb, using natural interaction interfaces.
Check my blog for details.

In my thesis project i'm using Wikka to integrate concept mapping, using wiki pages as concepts.
I'm tweaking Wikka code a bit, and i'm adding some actions and formatters as well.

I hope to show the world something useful and interesting very soon!

Take care,

Hiya Stefano. I'm using wikka with one of my university special topics courses as a tool for students to communicate about their work on a term-long technology project. The idea of introducing concept mapping into wikka is quite appealing, as I teach concept mapping as part of my "methods" courses (on how to teach science in elementary and high school). I started playing with a corkboard that I wanted to introduce into wikka (first efforts here)...but got bogged down with trying to drag the boxes around into groups and save the new position back to the server (although webnote certainly suggests it's possible....but I can't get it working on my server). The idea of dragging the boxes into groupings of ideas & saving the location was moving towards the fundamentals of concept mapping (similar to the playing with post-it note groupings that students do as part of developing a concept map in my classes). Anyways, I look forward to seeing your contributions to wikka...and ultimately your thesis. -- GmBowen (aka Mike Bowen)
