Submission + - 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."

1 + 1 = 3, for large values of 1.
