Summary[edit | edit source]

Green wikis: Although "green wikis" are mostly not about appropriate technology and thus outside the focus of this study, there are many potential lessons for appropriate technology collaborations:

  • Many of the motives are the same, although the participants in green wikis are probably not as extremely technically oriented as those working on open design projects.
  • There are many more green wikis (and other green collaborations), thus offering a richer set of data, to supplement the experience of appropriate technology open collaborations.
