Please introduce yourself and let us know whether you have implemented Confluence or are considering it.

Wikis are probably my most favorite thing in this world next to my husband, two dogs, and chocolate! I have been a wiki enthusiast for over five years with Confluence and MediaWiki as my two favorite wiki platforms at this moment in time. Below are links to resources I’d like to share:

Thanks for your intro and the resources you shared.
I’m also a member of the SLA but never realized it was running on Confluence.
The National Geographic project also sounds interesting. Perhaps you could tell us more at a later date?

In May a handful of us from National Geographic and a handful of federal government organizations held a session on some of the ways we have been developing wikis. Atlassian sponsored the session and flew someone out to videotape the session. The presentations as well as a link to Atlassian’s site where the videos are stored can be found at the following address: Sharing our Stories about Wiki the Pecha Kucha Way.

I am part of the Information Management Branch at Industry Canada (and Claude is part of my team 😀 — Hi Claude!). With the help of our CIO sector, we launched a department-wide internal wiki on June 16th 2009. We are using Confluence to provide a collaborative tool to about 6000 employees located all across Canada.
Some of the major goals were to break down silos, encourage openness & communication and have a comprehensible knowledge repository reflecting IC’s activities & expertise.
The wiki is still very young and we’re nowhere near having 6000 active users, but so far the wiki has been very well received in the department. To facilitate this, we’re working with our library to provide different kinds of trainings and sessions to our coworkers.
Perhaps I can talk about how we’ve structured our wiki in another post — this intro’s getting pretty long.

Hi, my name is Shannon and I’m a contractor working with the FAA. We have not implemented a Confluence Wiki, but are considering it and thus, very interested. I’m interested in lessons learned and roll out plans. I look forward to another post Stephane. Thanks for sharing everyone, collaboration is great!

Confluence continues to impress me. Let us know if we can help out. Regardless of which software package you choose, budget a year for employee adoption.
Agreed as well, Stéphane, time for another post.

Hello all (well, all 7 of us so far, but hopefully more soon). I spent the better part of two months trying to convince our medium sized government consulting firm to adopt Confluence. Well, many moons later, there’s at least a skunkworks instance of Confluence up and running. Would love to find like-minded users here with an interest in both government and Confluence. Anyone still active in this group?

how’s the “skunkworks” project going so far? I don’t know the culture of your workplace, but every launch I’m aware of has an adoption problem at the start. This resistance to a new way of working can be attenuated with a few strategies laid out properly at the start of the project.
I look forward to your discussions.
