Ward Cunningham

Howard G. "Ward" Cunningham is an American programmer who developed the first wiki and was a co-author of the Manifesto for Agile Software Development. A pioneer in both design patterns and extreme programming, he started coding the WikiWikiWeb in 1994, installed it on the website of the software consultancy he started with his wife, Cunningham & Cunningham, on March 25, 1995, as an add-on to the Portland Pattern Repository, he has authored a book about wikis, entitled The Wiki Way. He invented Framework for Integrated Tests. Cunningham was a keynote speaker at the first three instances of the WikiSym conference series on wiki research and practice, at the Wikimedia Developer Summit 2017. Cunningham was born in Michigan City and grew up in Highland, staying there through high school, he received his Bachelor's degree in interdisciplinary engineering and his master's degree in computer science from Purdue University, graduating in 1978. He is a founder of Inc.. He has served as Director of R&D at Wyatt Software and as Principal Engineer in the Tektronix Computer Research Laboratory.

He is founder of The Hillside Group and has served as program chair of the Pattern Languages of Programming conference which it sponsors. Cunningham was part of the Smalltalk community. From December 2003 until October 2005, he worked for Microsoft Corporation in the "Patterns & Practices" group. From October 2005 to May 2007, he held the position of Director of Committer Community Development at the Eclipse Foundation. In May 2009, Cunningham joined AboutUs as its chief technology officer. On March 24, 2011 The Oregonian reported that Cunningham had departed AboutUs to join Venice Beach-based CitizenGlobal, a startup working on crowd-sourced video content, as their chief technology officer and the Co-Creation Czar, he remains "an adviser" with AboutUs. Cunningham is now a programmer at New Relic. Cunningham is well known for a few disseminated ideas which he originated and developed; the most famous among these are the wiki and many ideas in the field of software design patterns, made popular by the Gang of Four.

He owns the company Cunningham & Cunningham Inc. a consultancy that has specialized in object-oriented programming. He created the site WikiWikiWeb, the first internet wiki; when asked in a 2006 interview with whether he considered patenting the wiki concept, he explained that he thought the idea "just sounded like something that no one would want to pay money for."Cunningham is interested in tracking the number and location of wiki page edits as a sociological experiment and may consider the degradation of a wiki page as part of its process to stability. "There are those who take. You can tell by reading what they write."In 2011, Cunningham created Smallest Federated Wiki, a tool for wiki federation, which applies aspects of software development such as forking to wiki pages. He signed the Manifesto for Agile Software Development Ward Cunningham has contributed to the practice of object-oriented programming, in particular the use of pattern languages and the class-responsibility-collaboration cards.

He contributes to the extreme programming software development methodology. Much of this work was done collaboratively on the first wiki site. Ward is credited with the idea: "The best way to get the right answer on the Internet is not to ask a question; this refers to the observation that people are quicker to correct a wrong answer than to answer a question. According to Steven McGeady, Cunningham advised him of this on a whim in the early 1980s, McGeady dubbed this Cunningham's law. Although referring to interactions on Usenet, the law has been used to describe how other online communities work, such as Wikipedia. Cunningham himself denies ownership of the law, calling it a "misquote that disproves itself by propagating through the internet." Cunningham lives in Oregon. He holds an Amateur Radio Extra Class license issued by the Federal Communications Commission, his call sign is Kilo Nine Oscar X-ray, K9OX. Cunningham is Nike's first Code for a Better World Fellow.

Lexical lists

The cuneiform lexical lists are a series of ancient Mesopotamian glossaries which preserve the semantics of Sumerograms, their phonetic value and their Akkadian or other language equivalents. They are the oldest literary texts from Mesopotamia and one of the most widespread genres in the ancient Near East. Wherever cuneiform tablets have been uncovered, inside Iraq or in the wider Middle East, these lists have been discovered; the earliest lexical lists are the archaic word lists uncovered in caches of business documents and which comprise lists of nouns, the absence of verbs being due to their sparse use in these records of commercial transactions. The most notable text is LU A, a list of professions which would be reproduced for the next thousand years until the end of the Old Babylonian period unchanged. Third millennium lists dating to around 2600 BC have been uncovered at Fara and Abū Ṣalābīkh, including the Fara God List, the earliest of this genre; the tradition continued until the end of the Ur III period, after which marked changes in the form of the texts took place.

This era, the Old-Babylonian period, saw the emergence of the UR5-ra = hubullu themed list. Lists of complex signs and polyvalent symbols emerged to support a more nuanced scribal training; the Kassite or Middle-Babylonian period shows that scribal schools preserved the lexical traditions of the past and there is evidence of the canonization of some texts, such as izi = išātu and Ká-gal = abullu. The works SIG7+ALAN = nabnītu and Erim-huš = anantu are thought to have been composed at this time; the first Millennium represents a further expansion and refinement of the texts and the introduction of commentaries and synonym lists. Lexical lists fall within one or more of the following broad categories: simple sign lists and syllabories complex or compound sign lists, name lists acrographic sign lists, ordered by sign shape or orientation thematic lexical texts synonym and/or antonym lists lists expounding homophony and polyvalency The extant texts can be classified by typology as follows: Prisms and large tablets Teacher-student exercises Single column tablets Lentils This would have included wax-covered writing boards, examples of which have regrettably not survived.

The following provides a listing of the various synonym and grammatical lists whose occurrences have yielded a name used in antiquity or significance has resulted in a designation in modern Assyriology, where the MSL or other references in square parentheses give the primary publication of the lexical texts, the synonym texts not qualifying for inclusion in this series.
