What is a Wiki?

Answer: different things to different people. To some it is

  • online collaboration software. People from around the globe can edit pages that are instantly updated. Anyone can create, read, and modify resources (webpages) and every other interested party will immediately see the changes.
    • a collective editing of content. Wikipedia is now the canonical example.
    • a Content Management System (CMS) stemming from the previous point
