Image via WikipediaJust came across a great resource for deciding where to create a wiki. It is a wiki matrix site in which you can select all the possibilities and then compare them side by side. You can look at such things as whether the style is WYSIWYG (What You See is What You Get), what kind of plug-ins can be inserted, and many other details.
I have been educating myself today about wikis. I was leaning toward using PBWiki (which is now called PBWorks). WetPaint and Wikispaces were two other possibilities. So I found the Wiki Matrix Site and plugged all three in as my choices. Excellent. Just wanted to pass it on to the rest of my classmates.
(I read somewhere that Wiki was named after the Wiki-Wiki bus in Hawaai which was the quick way to get to the airport.)
