Wikis — like blogs, but more flexible

Robin Good wrote a long post about wiki tools, including Social Text and Near-Time. I read this yesterday, looked at both sites, and thought, yeah, these are nice.

Today I found PBwiki — and now I’m excited about the idea! PBwiki is not only free; it also provides an extremely simple interface, reminiscent of Blogger.

What PBwiki says about itself:

PBwiki is the world’s largest consumer wiki farm. Wikis are simple Web pages that let you collaborate with others.

Educators: Penn State has created a complete course in rhetoric in PBwiki.

Journalists: Consider setting up a wiki to track your ongoing projects and beats.

Wikipedia is the world’s most famous wiki, as you probably know. It’s built on the same principles as all other wikis.
