[edit] What is a Wiki?

   "A wiki (WIK-ee) is a website which invites all users 
   to edit any page or to create new pages within the 
   wiki Web site, using only a plain-vanilla Web browser 
   without any extra add-ons. Most are created collaboratively.

Wikis are often adopted by agile teams to remove communication bottlenecks and allow team information to be added or updated in real time by any trusted member of a team. Some teams also hold asynchronous discussions on their wikis.

[edit] "Gardeners" Wanted

"I find that in the early stages wikis need some "gardening". Like plants, it's important that you have fertile soil. I liken fertile soil to a community that is willing to share and communicate (few wikis can grow in barren soil). ..." -- AntonyWilson (on the original WikiWiki http://c2.com/cgi/wiki?WikiWatering )

A WikiGardener plants things, tend, prunes, tidies and generally nurtures. A WikiGnome fixes small flaws and does little maintenance jobs. Both roles are essential parts of stewarding a wiki, keeping it alive and healthy. More on this under WikiGardening .
