What is a Wiki?

 

According to Wikipedia:

 

A wiki (IPA: [wi.kiː] or [wiː.kiː][1]) is a website that allows visitors to add, remove, and edit content.[2] A collaborative technology for organizing information on Web sites, the first wiki (WikiWikiWeb) was developed by Ward Cunningham in the mid-1990s.[3][4] Wikis allow for linking among any number of pages. This ease of interaction and operation makes a wiki an effective tool for mass collaborative authoring.[5] Wikipedia, an online encyclopedia, is probably the best known wiki.[4]

Wikis that are editable by the general public (such as Wikipedia) have been criticized for their reliability, simply because malicious or incompetent individuals may introduce disinformation.[4] Proponents rely on their community of users who can catch malicious content and correct it. Wikis in general make a basic assumption of the goodness of people.[4]
