MediaWiki Review

The latest in my reviews of hosting provider open source software is available at Free Software Magazine.You can read the full review here.Wikipedia is a Wiki – basically a information storage engine that works entirely through a web interface. I describe it more succinctly in the article:

A Wiki – of which MediaWiki is one of the most widely used and best known – provides a simple, web-based environment that enables users to collaborate and provide and share information. Wikis are not about discussions, and they are not about regular articles or posts, like a blog.

I have a number of installations, including one that I use to record and document the internal systems here. A companion blog documents changes. There’ll be more about that over on MCslp Coalface soon.
