Wik.is Launches | OpenGarden


MindTouch has launched Wik.is, a community wiki site that simplifies collaboration and knowledge sharing for friends and family members, businesses, associations, students and educators.

The uses of wik.is are as broad as human knowledge and activity: Friends and family: family scrap book, travel log, event planning and celebration (graduation, wedding, anniversary) Personal interest,clubs and associations: sports, cars, games, Siamese cats, Persian rugs, combat airplanes, Mongolian throat singers, anything and everything. Schools and researchers: research papers, study plan, group project, school bulletins, and more.

We thought it would be a good idea to launch/re-launch http://www.Wik.is in connection with the Community2.0 conference. I want to highlight a few choice communities. These are in no particular order and are a few I noticed while watching sites scroll by:

Of course within the first few hours we had a big spike in traffic (see graphic below), it took us down for a few hours.

Wik.is Traffic

I have to say. I’m surprised. We didn’t really do much to build awareness. It’s not a ridiculous amount of traffic, but it did require RoyK and PeteE scramble to get us up and running again. Thanks guys.
