What is a Wiki?

by Barbara J. Feldman on November 30, 2004

A wiki is an online collection of information that is created and edited by a group. Some groups are public (i.e. anyone can contribute), while others are closed (you must be a member.) Either way, the concept is the same. Popular examples of public wikis include Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia ( http://en.wikipedia.org/ ), and Wikiquote ( http://en.wikiquote.org ).
