Jacek Jankowski, Marek Jozwowicz, Yolanda Cobos, Bill McDaniel, Stefan Decker "3DWiki: The 3D Wiki Engine", Proceedings of the International Symposium on Wikis and Open Collaboration (WikiSym) 2009, 2009.
We demonstrate one of the potential paths of the evolution of wiki engines towards Web 3.0. We introduce 3dWiki - the 3D wiki engine, which was built according to 2-Layer Interface Paradigm (2LIP). It was developed for use by Copernicus, our vision of a 3D encyclopedia. In the demonstration: We give an overview of 2-Layer Interface Paradigm, an attempt to marry advantages of 3D experience with the advantages of narrative structure of hypertext. We describe step by step how to create an article for Copernicus: from creating models for the 3D background, through authoring the content, creating the c-links, to publishing the result in our encyclopedia. We show how to use a physics engine in our wiki.
