Internal wikis allow organizations to maximize the diversity of expertise found throughout their staff, and provide a space where all knowledge is equal and brainstorming thrives. Organizations with public-facing wikis are able to educate and learn from their consumers in a highly-interactive environment.
Enthusiasts of all varieties use wikis to share their insider tips and knowledge to help educate their communities and the world-at-large. Hobbyists, fan clubs, and academics are drawn to creating and contributing to wiki sites.
Technical professionals and open-source pioneers can easily work with their peers around the world. Anyone that has a public wiki profile, like those found on Wikipedia, will have more control over their public profiles with a TheirName.wiki site.
