The word "wiki" comes from Hawaiian and means "quick" or "fast." What is generally understood by wiki now is a web site that lets any viewer become a participant. You can quickly and easily create or edit the actual site content without any special technical knowledge or tools. A wiki is continuously under revision. It is a living resource pool owned by all participants and the creative process is shared. One famous example is Wikipedia.
