Colbert Report and the problems with Wikipedia
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Talk:Elephant/Colbert
If Wikipedia doesn't want their pages to be vandalized, then they shouldn't allow just anyone to edit the pages. The Colbert Report exposed just how easily wrong information can be given on Wikipedia. Wikipedia is not a trusted source of information becuase of its open edit policy. There is wrong info all over Wikipedia and Wikipedia does nothing about it. The administrators for Wikipedia are just people who have signed up to be one online. Wikipedia has way too many problems and has way too much false information. Hopefully all the vandalism with the Colbert Report will wake up Wikipedia and create a safe and reliable web based encyclopedia.
A popular Comedy Central show, The Colbert Report, talked about Wikipedia and asked viewers to go onto Wikipedia and post that the population of elephants in Africa has increased in the last year.
The response was immediate.
Users began changing numbers on Wikipedia. The Wikipedia admins locked down the Elephants entry, but did so after some of the first changes had been made. They scrambled to create an entry with the discussion about the issue, and the discussion is quite interesting to those wanting to learn more about how Wikipedia is working.

Wikerviews
http://collaboration.wikicities.com/wiki/Wikerview
Wikerview
Wikerviews are collaborative interviews conducted in the wiki environment.
Wikerviews are collaborative because they may involve more than one interviewer, and/or interviewee and are conducted in a nonlinear fashion - that is, an initial question may be posed, with more questions springing from the first while the first question continues to be fleshed out.
This process jointly develops a shared understanding of the interview's content, contrasting it from a traditional 'turn-taking' interview in which the person interviewed is on the receiving end of the interview's content construction and interviewer's objectives.

Making the Case for a Wiki
The wiki could be christened 'simple user-editable data storage'. It was born in 1995 to hold a pattern repository, the term 'Wiki' famously being taken from the Hawaiian term 'WikiWiki', or 'Super fast'.

Wiki History
http://c2.com/cgi/wiki?WikiHistory
Wiki History : It began on March 25, 1995
This is the first ever wiki site, founded as an automated supplement to the PortlandPatternRepository. The site was immediately popular within the pattern community, largely due to the newness of the Internet and a good slate of InvitedAuthors. The site was, and remains, dedicated to PeopleProjectsAndPatterns.

What Is Wiki
http://wiki.org/wiki.cgi?WhatIsWiki
Wiki is in Ward's original description: The simplest online database that could possibly work.
Wiki is a piece of server software that allows users to freely create and edit Web page content using any Web browser. Wiki supports hyperlinks and has a simple text syntax for creating new pages and crosslinks between internal pages on the fly.
Wiki is unusual among group communication mechanisms in that it allows the organization of contributions to be edited in addition to the content itself.
Like many simple concepts, "open editing" has some profound and subtle effects on Wiki usage. Allowing everyday users to create and edit any page in a Web site is exciting in that it encourages democratic use of the Web and promotes content composition by nontechnical users.
