Researchers, practitioners, educators, and students of software architecture would benefit from having online access to quality information about the state of research and practice of software architecture. In recent years, Wiki technology has enabled distributed and collaborative editing of content using only a Web browser. To explore whether Wiki technology would be effective in facilitating the ongoing discussion and evolution of ideas on software architecture, we hosted the WICSA Wiki WAN Party (WWWP) during the 4th Working IEEE/IFIP Conference on Software Architecture (WICSA 2004). We used a history tool developed at IBM Research to monitor site activity and provide daily feedback to conference participants. This report recounts experience hosting this Wiki site and summarizes the site activity.
