Wiki: Compare them All

Beth's Blog: How Nonprofits Can Use Social Media

I compared wikispaces with pbwiki - the two user-friendly hosted wiki apps that I like. This is a cool site. It lets you select any two or more wiki packages and then it dynamically creates a feature-by-feature comparison. Great model!

Evaluating Wikis

Idealware

There are plenty of great hosted Wikis, like PBWorks (formerly PBWiki) and WikiSpaces , in addition to all of the Wikis that you can download and install on your own Server.
