A wiki is a page or collection of Web pages designed to enable anyone who accesses it to contribute or modify content (excluding blocked users), using a simplified markup language.

Wikis are often used to create collaborative websites and to power community websites.
First wiki was installed by Ward Cunningham in
(name: WikiWikiWeb).

Later it was named as wiki, a Hawaiian word meaning "fast" or "quick". Wiki Wiki Shuttle buses run on the island of Hawaii at the Honolulu International Airport.
He later described the wiki software, as
"the simplest online database that could possibly work."
Inspiration was from Apple's HyperCard, a system allowing users to create virtual "card stacks"
uses hypertext language.
’’’[[Wiki]]’’’ uses hypertext language.
