Wikis

I didn’t know there are so many different wikis out there…

What is a wiki you ask?

A wiki is a website that allows the easy creation and editing of any number of interlinked web pages via a web browser using a simplified markup language or a WYSIWYG text editor.

Or more simplified:

A wiki is software that allows users to freely create and edit Web page content using any Web browser.

Ok, we all know the famous Wikipedia, the online and free encyclopedia 😉

But what else is out there?

Wikitravel – travel guides

Wikiversity – learning resources, projects, and research

wikiHow – tutorials galore 🙂

Uncyclopedia – a comedic version of Wikipedia 😛
