Editorial: Is the wiki concept really so wonderful?
Article publication date: 1 June 2005
To provide a brief viewpoint on wikis. A wiki is a web site that allows – and encourages – users to share information by freely writing new content, adding to existing content, and editing or commenting on content.
An opinion piece based on the author's own experiences.
Reflecting the chaotic nature of the web world in which wikis exist, the reality of the situation is that they often do not operate in a positive environment. The author's experience as a wiki participant on several occasions has been far from positive.
Provides advice to users of wikis: use with caution.
