[edit] Abstract

Wikis are new forms of social software, designed to promote information sharing. They are Web pages that can be edited by the user. Everyone can share information in real time and with little trouble. Wikis remove the bureaucracy and promote the community of people with like interests. Information on a wiki site does not start out as authoritative. The software makes no attempt to check the accuracy and stature of the person who shares information. Information presented is corrected and refined by peers. This is peer review on a grand scale in that the community can be worldwide. The most successful wiki today is the Wikipedia Project, a huge encyclopedia generated by the citizens of the world at http://en.wikipedia.org. Wikis can be used to promote the understanding of quality and how it's practiced.
