The Wiki Way, Quick Collaboration on the Web

Bo Leuf, Ward Cunningham, Addison Wesley, 020171499X

I would have like to have seen more evidence why other, more complex, software usually fails where Wiki’s are a perfect fit; I’m pretty sure it is because of the fuzzy process of discovery of knowledge in an organization that the almost-structureless Wikis are succesful.

Unfortunately this book doesn’t give any ammunition for the discussion between wiki proponents and ‘conservative’ knowledge-base-builders.

What it does offer is an introduction to running your own Wiki. It is very much an entry level computer book. Which probably is a good thing, in the case of Wiki’s.
