Evaluating Wikis


Wikis are convenient collaborative editing platforms that remove a lot of the legacy awkwardness that traditional editing software brings to writing for the web. Collaborative authoring is another natural use, illustrated beautifully by the Floss Manuals project. TWiki, along with Confluence , SocialText and other platforms, include (either natively or via an optional plugin) tabular data -- spreadsheet like pages for tracking lists and numeric information.
