With cloud computing continuing its reach into areas once dominated by desktop applications, it's a great time to consider how your business could benefit from online collaboration tools for producing great documents. Whether it's a proposal, press release, manual, or other type of communication or documentation, there are some great and relatively easy to use tools out there to help your team prepare it. We've looked at the bigger picture in team collaboration tools before, including everything from private group messaging to shared contacts to project management. Wikis Wiki software allows multiple users to collaborate on interlinked web documents relatively easily using a WYSIWYG editor or a lightweight markup language.

WhyWikiWorks MeatballWiki | RecentChanges | Random Page | Indices | Categories Why does Wiki work, when there is no protection against vandalism? 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. !
