In the grand battle between collaborative and expressive web technologies in education, expressive technologies won. We engage our students in forums, talk to them in Slack, have them write personal blogs. Wiki, once considered a contender in the blogs vs. wikis Battle Royale, has fallen by the wayside. This keynote will examine some of the reasons behind the decline, talk about the risks such a decline poses, and sketch out a possible future for the web which envisions a better balance of collaboration, expression, and personal control.
