Workshop homepage.

Wiki spam has begun to cripple the use of public wikis. The original WikiWikiWeb threw its 'shields up' at the beginning of 2005 in part due to spammers. The problem of defending against wiki spam while preserving the traditional wiki value of openness is a daunting one. MeatballWiki has been leading the discussion of how to defend sensibly against wiki spam. This workshop is intended as both a report on progess as well as a facilitated time to come together to devise better solutions for this problem.

Sunir Shah, University of Toronto:  Sunir Shah is the Founder and Editor of MeatballWiki, which has facilitated communitywide wiki development on the Internet since April 2000. Shah is also the original articulator of the concept of soft security. MeatballWiki has made several important contributions to the defense of wiki culture in the face of new types of attacks. For the past two years, it has been facilitating the ongoing discussion around wiki spam on MeatballWiki as well as contributing important theoretical concepts and technical solutions, such as the peer-to-peer ban list and citizen arrest.
