Happy birthday, Wikipedia! The world has changed a lot since 2001, and Wikipedia has been along for the ride. The open source software that powers Wikipedia, MediaWiki, is used for a large number of wikis around the globe. In fact, Hollow Developers has utilized MediaWiki for over 5 years at The World Called Hollow. Hollow’s community wiki contains extensive documentation about the world, and has been carefully crafted by the players of the game.
A wiki provides a great way for many people to collaborate on the same document. Companies are increasingly looking to wikis to provide support for employees, and MediaWiki is a great tool to accomplish this goal.
