Get wiki with it!
Here at InGenius, we’re wiki people. We’ve adopted Ward’s Wiki technology, and use it throughout our company.
- When you submit a resume to our company, it automatically ends up in an internal wiki.
- When we start a new project, we start a wiki on day one.
- We track ideas, project plans, business plans, etc on various wiki’s.
- We do product FAQ’s using a wiki.
- And, my personal home page is run using a wiki.
So, what’s a wiki???
Basically, it’s a web page that you can edit simply by clicking on an “Edit” link, or sometimes, by double-clicking on the web page. The page text opens up in a big text box on screen, and you edit by simply typing the text you want to put on the page. There’s a simple wiki language – which varies from one wiki implementation to the next, which allows you to specify links, text formatting, build tables, etc. Here’s a nice description, from wikipedia. Anyone can edit any page! (you can lock pages if you want) You can edit your web site from anywhere!
