Abstract
Because I am a MediaWiki developer, and because I am incredibly lazy and particular, I use MediaWiki for quite a few things that I really, really, shouldn't, or so people keep telling me at conferences. But they're wrong. I do all these things, including using it as a personal notepad, for my blog, and a nostalgia dump of the 2008 english wikipedia, among even dumber ideas.
If this talk is accepted, I will assemble a list of 22 of these and show you in excruciating detail just what all can be done, how wrong those other people at conferences are, and how easy it would be for you to do these things too!
