Wiki is Hawaiian for 'quick' - it's a really quick, easy
collaborative tool for building content and near
perfect for brainstorming. It's so easy
to use you don't need to learn how to use it because
it follows very simple formatting rules (yes, easier
than HTML):

Anyone [1] can edit any [2] page by hitting the 'edit this
page' link.

Creating pages is particularly easy - any two words
capitalised LikeThis are a link to a page of the same
title (so LikeThis links to ./LikeThis). If the page doesn't exist,
the Wiki throws up an edit form to create it.

It's better explained on the original Wiki:

Or just try it.

(this one is running on Zope and ZWiki - both open
source - yay)


[1] at the moment - I can increase security if needed
[2] excluding structural and help pages
