What in the World is a Wiki?
Wikis are systems that allow people to quickly create and modify Web pages in a collaborative setting. Anyone and everyone can edit the pages of a Wiki website, subverting traditional ideas about authorship, ownership and authority. This talk will explain what Wikis are, where they came from, and how they are being used, with particular attention to Wikipedia, the free online encyclopedia that is the biggest Wiki in the world.
