A wiki is essentially an online database for creating, browsing, and searching through information in one centralized location. It eliminates the need to resend documents/files from one person to another.
Wikis are often used to create collaborative websites, to power community websites, to record personal notes, and to share ideas. You may also see wikis used in corporate intranets and in knowledge management systems.
