Wiki Wiki Wiki

No I am not talking about the midget robot dude in Buck Rogers. A wiki is a website with a built in user friendly content management system. My first impressions of the wiki was it was pretty anarchic, as by default it lets anyone who visits the site to edit the content of the site, though the fact is there are a lot of volunteer contributors to the sites I've visited anyway, who try and keep evildoers at bay. Working on the same principle as open source, the more eyeballs that can check and verify everythings ok, the harder it is for any one person or group of people to wreck it. The Wikis I have been visiting and contributing to are (a free encyclopedia) (a free travel guides site) and, which is a free quotations database website.
