  • What is Wiki? - at Wiki.org, hosted by Leuf and Cunningham
    • The simplest online database that could possibly work.
    • Wiki is a piece of server software that allows users to freely create and edit Web page content using any Web browser. Wiki supports hyperlinks and has a simple text syntax for creating new pages and crosslinks between internal pages on the fly.
    • Wiki is unusual among group communication mechanisms in that it allows the organization of contributions to be edited in addition to the content itself.
    • Like many simple concepts, "open editing" has some profound and subtle effects on Wiki usage. Allowing everyday users to create and edit any page in a Web site is exciting in that it encourages democratic use of the Web and promotes content composition by nontechnical users.
