This presentation will demonstrate Flow, a next-generation collaboration and discussion system. We'll go over what it is but most importantly what it means for the future.
Detailed proposal
Flow is most obviously a replacement for user talk pages but it has the potential to be so much more. I'll talk about the rationale for various design choices, what we've learned about how Wikipedians communicate with each other, the use cases we are targeting during phase one (broad and micro), and demonstrate the software we have.
