What is a Wiki


(n.) A collaborative Web site comprised of the perpetual collective
work of many authors. Similar to a blog in structure and logic, a wiki allows
anyone to edit, delete, or modify content that has been placed on the
Web site using a browser interface, including the work of previous authors.

In contrast, a blog, typically authored by an individual, does not allow
visitors to change the original posted material, only add comments to
the original content. The term wiki refers to either the Web site or the
software used to create the site.

Wiki wiki means "quick" in Hawaiian. The first wiki was created by Ward
Cunnigham in 1995, currently working with Microsoft
