What is a wiki?

A wiki site is a Web site in which users can easily edit any page. The site grows organically by linking existing pages together or by creating links to new pages. If a user finds a link to an uncreated page, he or she can follow the link and create the content.
In business environments, a wiki site provides a low-maintenance way to record knowledge. Information that is usually traded in e-mail messages, gleaned from hallway conversations, or stored in Word documents can instead be recorded in a wiki site, in context with similar knowledge for faster collaboration.  The way in which the pages are linked avoids repetition, which means you only have to update a single instance of a particular article in order for all sources to point back to the latest revision.
Other example uses of wiki sites include brainstorming ideas, collaborating on designs, creating an instruction guide, gathering data from the field, tracking call center knowledge, and building an encyclopedia of knowledge.
One of the most notable examples of a functioning Wiki is Wikipedia.
