I spent a part of last weekend investigating wikis. I have zero budget
for such software, yet I needed to find a free web environment that give
oodles of storage space, possibility to set permissions, and a fair amount
of customization for a working group of five spread over a 9 hour timezone.
Not at all. A review that I found one year ago comparing 'Wiki Farms'
was just the tip of the iceberg. The web is CRAWLING with
collaborations, of all shapes, sizes, colors, complexities! You Tube is
rockin, but it is still "YOU". The Wiki Farms give you "WE". :-)
