Wetpaint The Wiki Site



“Wiki” was originally an abreviation of “Wiki Wiki Web” software developed by American Computer Programmer Ward G. Cunningham born in 1949. Hawaiin “Wiki Wiki” = Quick + Web. Ward G. Cunningham created the “Wiki Wiki Web” software program in 1995. The reason for the “quick” part is a Wiki is a collaborative effort website, where all the members can add content. Some content additons at certain Wikis are designated to writers, moderators, and administrators, but all Wikis allow thread posts and you can design your personal profiles anyway you like 🙂

A Wiki “thread” is like a little forum converstaion or topic, really a discussion starter or forum between members of the Wiki.

Some Wikis require you to request a Writer status to add or edit page content, others just need you to sign up as a member of the wiki, and others let even anonomous writers to add threads and content. i call them the “Free Range” Wikis 🙂

I have made a few How To Videos on the Wetpaint Wiki and Interlinking that will help get you going at Wetpaint.com. Visit Wavecritters Channel at YouTube.

A few of the Wetpaint Wikis I have created are:




These are works in progress 😉





The Wetpaint Wiki sites are easy to join and easy to create your own free sites.

There are other Wiki sites as well, I just prefer Wetpaint.com

Theres PBWiki for business educators and cooperative teams, of course Wards Wiki, the first ever. They have a book out “The Wiki Way” and at Wiki.org you can join in on the discussion, and Wikipedia.

WikiSpaces is a site for simple web pages that groups, friends, and families can edit together, private wikis here have a small monthy fee.

Ning is also a Blog Social Network that allows each member to “fluff” their personal profile pages, add content, and be an active Wiki member.

If you would like to find more Wiki options, you can compare Wikis and get a HUGE list at WikiMatrix

Enjoy Your Wikis and Join Some New Ones 😉
