What’s a wiki?

Poster (Some rights reserved)

The term ‘wiki‘ is derived from a Polynesian word meaning ‘quick.’

This is an apt descriptor since changes can be made immediately by editors.

For the purposes of Planeta.com, a wiki is a particularly useful platform for collaboration. Wikis allow multiple editors with each step being logged.

That said, many of our closest friends have an aversion to collaborative editing and writing. Some would rather send a word document back-and-forth than use a wiki or Google Docs.

On this page we are creating and curating visual art work that explain the wikiverse. Submissions and suggestions please.

Translating: Have you edited a wiki?
Spanish: ¿Has editado un wiki?

Have you edited a wiki? = ¿Has editado un wiki? #roofdog
