SMW for citizen science, some examples and perspectives[edit]

In this talk I'll cover my experience and plans regarding the use of SMW to build wikis for 'citizen science', allowing a 'crowd' of users to enter structured scientific data. I'll talk about the successful SEQwiki project, and some other less successful projects I've worked on. I'll finish with some plans and perspectives on 'crowd computing'.
