A wiki is an incredibly useful way to create document-centric websites, but if you are working with a structured data and want to run queries across that data, a wiki can result in chaos. With the right tools though, a wiki can be incredibly useful for both structured and unstructured data.

In this session we'll cover using MediaWiki and the powerful Semantic Bundle to create data rich wikis with very structured data. To demonstrate this we will create new templates, properties and forms using MediaWiki and Semantic Bundle. We'll also look at advanced examples of these tools using three wikis I setup and help run, Creative Computer Book Club, Road Sign Math and TOS Redux.

This session will be beneficial to anyone looking to create useful sites using MediaWiki. To illustrate these concepts we will build a structured wiki for Minnebar.
