The Wiki has become the collaborative writing tool of Web 2.0. Wikipedia and its related properties have lead the charge, and behind them have come a slew of competing and complementary products. Unfortunately for most, very few of these products had enough innovative new features to live up to MediaWiki’s (the engine behind Wikipedia) fame.
Recently, I have come across what I feel is the next big step in Wiki. Instead of relying exclusively on text, Steve Bjorg and Aaron Fulkerson are turning the Wiki into a web services platform. I had a chance to chat with both of them and they explained the newest iteration on their Deki Wiki platform, “Hayes”. — Steve Spalding | How To Learn About Deki Wiki
