My personal recommendation is to use a blogging 
software. In my opinion, WordPress (free) is quite good.

It is the best way I can imagine to have a master 
piece of information (the blog entry), 
conveniently classified with tags, categories, 
etc., and all possible comments, modifications, 
additions, etc. (the comments to the blog entry).

I don’t like wikis. The changes are difficult to 
follow and to identify the origin. In the blog, 
the main entry is always safe, and someone (or 
someones) in charge can decide when and what to 
incorporate or modify to the main entry. It is collaborative, but not anarchic.
