Wiki Training

Page history last edited by anne courie-meulink 9 years, 5 months ago

Wiki fun facts:

 

WikiWikiWeb was the first wiki. Ward Cunningham started developing WikiWikiWeb in Portland, Oregon in 1994, and installed it on the Internet domain c2.com on March 25, 1995. It was named by Cunningham, who remembered a Honolulu International Airport counter employee telling him to take the "Wiki Wiki Shuttle" bus that runs between the airport's terminals. According to Cunningham, "I chose wiki-wiki as an alliterative substitute for 'quick' and thereby avoided naming this stuff quick-web.

 

Wiki means quick in Hawaiian. 

 

A wiki is a website that allows the easy creation and editing of any number of interlinked web pages via a web browser.
