Wikiwiki wikiing

Wikiwiki wikiing is just quickly doing stuff on a wiki (see definition of wikiwiki).

Today New Zealand’s Mount Ruapehu had a lahar, and I was quick to notice it on the Internet. In fact, so fast that there were only two sources available, now there are over 30 indexed by Google News.  So I created a breaking news story about a possible lahar on Wikinews, made it the top story on the main page, and on the New Zealand portal page.  Then as more sources grew and 3 News managed to confirm it with their helicopter (before the official confirmation) I had to quickly update the Wikinews article.

So remember, the next time you do something that has just happened recently, or you do it quickly, it’s called wikiwiki wikiing (or something like that).
