Identify Enterprise Wikis from List of Fortune 1000
Closed, ResolvedPublic


Enterprise wikis are often private. We will comb through the list of Fortune 1000 companies and try to identify companies that use MediaWiki.

Our initial research of a Fortune 1000 list confirmed that enterprise wikis are indeed difficult to find through basic or conventional search methods.

Creativity is needed to find these wikis. This task has been submitted for Google Code-in 2014 as a project that volunteers could help with. See T1340: Mentor Student(s) Who Will Help Identify Enterprise Wikis from List of Fortune 1000

how are you going to find out if they are mostly in private company networks? sounds hard unless you would start a mail campaign to ask them?

@Dzhan, the information is indeed hard to find. An email campaign was something that we thought about a month or two ago and may be useful and deserving of another look. Thanks for the ideas and comments - they are most welcomed. :)

In the meantime, we also decided on T1113: Link to survey on 1.24 installer and T1136: Extract and Sort WikiApiary Database .

fwiw, there is also a bug that suggests adding some kind of opt-in "call home" feature to the wiki installer, so people who install mediawikis could allow it to report to us automatically that one is being installed. this is completely just an enhancement request though, nothing of it actually exists
