Why use a wiki, when anyone can change or delete anything there? What's to prevent someone from going berserk and wiping the whole site, or secretly changing the meaning of what people say, or clogging everything up with spam? The answer is the part of wikis that newcomers often miss: the community. Most community web sites rely on technology to restrict the actions of community members. There are several problems with this: Only one person can generally edit what they have already said, regardless of how bad a mistake they have made. Wikis work better because they rely on the community, rather than technology, to police itself.

There are technological protections, too -- they're just less obtrusive than having to "log in" or "rate" something. In short, wikis work because of the community. Perhaps wiki works because you get high value at a low price. ! Presentation2010x08x17 < Codev.
