What is a Wiki?

  • a technology for collaborative creation of internet and intranet pages
  • Wiki-Wiki is hawaiian and means fast

Principles

  • Fast - fast editing, communicating and easy to learn

  • Open - everybody may read and edit everything

  • Uncomplicated - everything works in a standard browser

  • Easy - no HTML knowledge necessary, simply formatted text

  • Simple - Content over Form (content counts, not the super-pretty appearance)

  • Secure - every change is archived, nothing gets lost

  • Interlinked - Links between pages are easy to make

  • Flexible

    • Personal Information Management, Knowledgebases, Brainstorming
    • Collaboration, Coordination and Communication platform
    • Creating documentation and slide shows ;)
    • etc...
