What is wiki (or wikiwiki)?

wikiwiki pages are community-edittable pages hosted on a server. Anyone can edit them without an account, and they thus provide a means for a community-constructed information and discussion project. They use a very simple markup language to add text conventions (such as bold and italics) which is very rapid to learn (hence 'wiki wiki', which means very fast in Hawaiian). The best example of the information side of Wiki is the Wikipedia (http://www.wikipedia.org), and the best example of the discussion/community side is probably the original wikiwiki (http://c2.com/cgi/wiki). Hopefully, everyone plays by community rules of respect and cooperation! Those who abuse the system have their comments deleted. See http://en.wikipe
