I am a member of the RIF and OWL working groups. My relationship with wikis 
mainly stems from my activity as the main developer/maintainer of the 
Semantic MediaWiki (SMW) extension [1] for getting metadata into and out of 
MediaWiki, and at least formally I am also a MediaWiki developer (I can 
commit to the MW trunk). We have been using a lot of wikis in Karlsruhe for 
quite some time now, both for our group intranet and for several community 
sites (now mainly ontoworld.org, which is also the wiki used for all recent 
semantic web conferences [E|I|A]SWC). I am also experimenting semantic wikis 
for non-collaborative website management, e.g. on my homepage [2] (all 
publication lists are generated by semantic queries, all data is available in 

Re migration: we have once migrated from SnipSnap to MediaWiki, and worked 
with categories to "tag" imported pages for manual cleanup.
