So I've found out about what a wiki is on none other that the most popular wiki itself: wikipedia's website (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Wiki). Basically, a wiki is website that any can view and edit who have access to it. It's basically, the simplest online database that can work. The word wiki itself is a shorter version of a Hawaiian word meaning quick; makes sense since it gets you information in a quick manner. The first time one appeared on the world wide web was in 1995 by Ward Cunningham. So now, that I know a bit more about it, let's find out how they are useful.
