What’s a WIKI?

Do you wiki? What is a wiki? A wiki is web software designed for collaboration. Unlike a traditional website where pages can only be read, in a wiki everyone can edit, update and append pages with new information, all without knowing HTML. Multiple people in same or different locations can all edit the same documents and create a shared archive. I like Jot.com. You don’t have to install a thing, and if you can use Microsoft Word, you can use JotSpot.

JotSpot’s wiki can be used in numerous ways:

  • Create a corporate intranet
  • Manage projects
  • Collaborate on documents
  • Keep a backup copy of your email by cc’ing your wiki
  • Maintain the department birthday calendar
