TWiki is a Web-based collaboration platform

  • A TWiki site is an easy-to-use, full-featured open communications environment:
    • people anywhere on the Web or on an intranet can meet
    • rich Web text, images, and online multimedia are easily shared
    • documents and other files can be uploaded and downloaded
    • all you need is a Web browser and any available network connection

TWiki is an UNUSUAL Web-based collaboration platform

  • There's no doubt that, to most people, TWiki at first seems almost the opposite of how the Web and online communications "normally" work. Why?
    • TWiki operates like a whiteboard for the Web - it lets you and all other users write, place pictures and post links, anywhere on any page.
    • Not only that, everyone can EDIT anything, anywhere on a page.
    • At first, this may seem "too" open - it soon becomes second-nature, allowing you the freedom to edit and update the way you want to.

"TWiki" stands for...

  • Wiki wiki means "quick" in Hawaiian. The shuttle at Honolulu Airport is called the wiki wiki bus, which is where the original Wiki web got its name.
  • TWiki is short for TakeFive Wiki, the name of the company where its founder Peter Thoeny worked. (It was later discovered that Twiki is also the name of an AI robot that co-starred in the Buck Rogers movie and TV series from 1979.)
