Ward Cunningham – Unbounded Creativity: The Antidote to Lean

Abstract: We describe our approach to reinventing wiki while addressing systemic weaknesses in the original and every other version to date. Wiki has always been less than you thought you needed while, at times, delivering far more than you thought was possible. While venture money chases unicorns we’re happy to build metaphorical trilobites. We’ll be happy to inform the future even if we don’t end up owning it.

About Ward: Ward Cunningham has worked for and consulted to daring startups and huge corporations. He has served as CTO, Director, Fellow, Principal Engineer and Inventor. He is best known for creating wiki. He leads an open-source project rebuilding wiki to solve more complex sharing situations addressing some of society’s toughest problems. Ward founded movements in object-oriented, agile software, extreme programming and pattern languages. Ward lives in Portland, Oregon and works for New Relic, Inc.
