<p>Slide 1</p> <p>Jos AntnioWhat is a wiki?Definition"Wiki" (English pronunciation:/wiki/) is a Hawaiian word for "fast".[4] "Wiki" can be expanded as "What I Know Is," but this is a backronym.[5]A wiki is a website that uses wiki software, allowing the easy creation and editing of any number of interlinked Web pages, using a simplified markup language or a WYSIWYG text editor, within the browser.[1][2] Wikis are often used to create collaborative websites, to power community websites, and for note taking. The collaborative encyclopedia Wikipedia is one of the best-known wikis.[2] Wikis are used in business to provide intranet and knowledge management systems. Ward Cunningham, the developer of the first wiki software, WikiWikiWeb, originally described it as "the simplest online database that could possibly work."[3]</p> <p>Wikipedia is a perfect example of a wiki. It is the one almost everyone knows about and most people use.
