Now you know what a wiki is.

The wiki, Hawaiian for 'quick', is fast becoming the new blog.

"No one understands the wiki, the poor cousin of the blog. But the wiki may end up having a deeper impact on how we do our work. A wiki is a group blog that can be edited by its readers (as opposed to a regular blog, which one person writes and everyone else reads). Wikis are more like conversations. The few well-known wikis include Wikipedia (the online encyclopedia where anyone can submit an article or edit an existing one), Wiki Travel (an amazingly comprehensive travel guide written by travelers), and Wikibooks (textbooks written collaboratively). But most wikis are limited to private groups and are used to manage corporate projects or to collaborate in a quick and dirty way with colleagues."
