- "I think all technologies go through the typical hype cycle. There will be a point at which wikis are perceived as good for absolutely nothing and then they will find their natural rhythm and become a staple in the way that people manage and collaborate."
- "One of the key things about wikis is that they evolve. They don't just start. They don't BeginWithTheEndInMind. They just begin, and you can change them over time. ... The difference between a user, a reader and a writer is very small. Also, they integrate really well."

- How 4 people might use a wiki insted of email to Coordinate a camping trip
Well, not news exactly. This excerpt is from a UK weekly net-news roundup
mailing list called NeedToKnow, dated 20 November 1998:
Tim Berners-Lee, [TimBernersLee] as we recall, is always moaning about how
the Web was *supposed* to be annotatable - it should be as
easy to add and edit Web documents, he says, as it is to
browse them. To see what kind of mess that would have lead
to, you might like to check out the WIKI WIKI WEB, an easy
to set-up, easy-to-understand, impossible-to-administrate
"collaborative environment". In many ways, it's a
self-perpetuating mess (it took us half an hour to work out
how to get the source), but - like the Xanadu project it
superficially resembles - it can't help but gland a few key
geek hormones. The original Wiki is a tiny Perl script, but
versions now exist in Python, Squeak, and other places where
geeks do the Right Thing so much it becomes Wrong Again.
- start here, we guess
- aha! found it
What do you think? fair commentary?
Not exactly, but if you're a regular reader of NeedToKnow, then you know that the editors Danny and Dave know a lot about blogging/online life/cyber-rights and weird snack foods (respectively), and rather less about the nitty-gritty of technology, so you take their opinion with a pinch of salt.
CNN recently had an article on WikiPedia. See ImminentDeathOfWikiPredicted for more.
