Wiki

A Wiki is like a web site, except that you can edit the content in your browser which is basically a shared, online, persistent whiteboard. Foswiki implements the Wiki idea of a shared whiteboard where anyone can add content or change what is written or change the organisation of the content. Whatever you write is nicely presented, remembered and never forgotten. Write using What-You-See-Is-What-You-Get (WYSIWYG) text editing  or you can use plain text with a simple topic markup language that is quick to learn and easy to remember or you can use full HTML for complex formatting tasks
