Wiki - Future Knowledge Management System?

andrewok writes "Wikipedia is the best known and the most visited wiki site on the web, currently ranking no. 12 on Alexa. But Wikipedia is not the only wiki — there are many other public wikis sites and wikis are also gaining popularity as enterprise knowledge management systems.

As a webmaster of BridgeArt.net, a portal devoted to online civil engineering community, I recently distributed electronic "wiki questionnaire" to learn more about what this specific online community knows about wiki and if it would be interested in its own specialized wiki. I received many interesting comments and surprisingly more than 80% of respondents would be in favor of a wiki site devoted specifically to the community.

I believe that the questionnaire results could be generalized to other online communities. And perhaps, wikis are indeed on their way to become the knowledge management systems of the future."
