Suitable for system administrators or managers seeking an affordable content-management solution, The Wiki Way shows off how to take advantage of Wiki collaborative software, which allows users to post and edit content remotely. This book is all you need to get up and running with this exciting (and free) way to build and manage content.

This text is first and foremost a guide to what Wiki software is and how to install, customize, and administer it within your organization. Early sections discuss the advantages of Wiki Web sites, which allow all users to add and edit content. While it might sound like a free-for-all, the authors suggest such Web sites have been used successfully in research, business, and education to document project designs, for brainstorming, and for otherwise creating content in a collaborative fashion. Case studies for such organizations as Georgia Tech, New York Times Digital, and Motorola give a glimpse of Wiki used in real settings, so you will get a sense of what to expect.

This book is also a guide to the nuts and bolts of downloading and installing Wiki and customizing it for your site. Sections on basic tweaks to Wiki's Perl scripts will let you customize your site to match your organization's needs. Standout material includes almost three dozen customization tips. This volume is illustrated with actual screen shots of Wiki, so you can get a sense of what it is like for users to work together in such an unrestricted fashion.

Throughout the text, the authors are suitably upbeat about Wiki's prospects for wider adoption, but they are realistic enough to note compromises (such as requiring passwords and restricting edit rights) required in business settings. They also survey the field of Wiki open-source projects and clones, as well as other similar content-management solutions (such as Zope and the emerging WebDAV standard).

While it's hard to predict whether Wiki-based Web sites are for everyone, this book presents the pros and cons of a potentially exciting and useful tool that promotes collaborative content creation. This title can help any organization get going with a Wiki Web site, from the standpoint of planning, deployment, and basic administration. --Richard Dragan

  • Collaboration tools explained
  • Web-based collaboration
  • WebDAV
  • Introduction to Wiki

Wiki discussion servers offer an exceptionally flexible, open source solution for a wide range of collaborative applications. Wiki offers simplicity, broad compatibility with current technologies and standards, and remarkably low cost. Now, there's a complete guide to deploying and managing Wiki servers, co-authored by Wiki's creator Ward Cunningham. The Wiki Way begins with an overview of discussion servers and their applications, and an introduction to Wiki's capabilities and components. The authors walk through installing Wiki, covering key Apache configuration and security issues; then introduce basic procedures for browsing, editing, content development, markup, and structuring Wiki content for diverse applications. The book also presents numerous case studies showcasing Wiki technology in action. An accompanying CD-ROM and companion web site at http://wiki.org/ provide the latest Wiki source code for multiple platforms.

Format: Taschenbuch
Although rather old (It was published before Wikipedia appeared), this book is still quite up-to-date if you're not interested in the state of the art but rather in the basics of wiki technology. The analysis of wiki culture is a particular strength of this book. Much of it is still valid in the age of Wikipedia.
From today's point of view, the book contains too much source code which is useless because of the variety of wiki implementations available today.
The book is somewhat hard to read for non-native speakers of English, because it uses a rather large vocabulary.

4.0 von 5 Sternen Not worth the price or the informational value for project work, but well-written and generally interesting 29. Juli 2008
Von Tyler - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Taschenbuch Verifizierter Kauf
I originally purchased this book to help with a project I was doing for the IEEE 60th Anniversary Website Competition. Our website was (logically) Wiki-based, so I had hoped this book could provide some fundamentals for Wiki-website design and implementation.

I think I unfortunately mis-understood or was mis-lead by some of the reviews and descriptions about this book. This book is not about design and implementation but more about the history and anecdotal usefulness a Wiki can bring to an organization/the world at large and additionally some very generic wiki web-programming examples.

If you're looking for something to "really" help you with a project from a design or implementation standpoint, please look elsewhere.

I give this product 4-stars because the way it is written and the majority of information included is pretty well-done, and would be useful if one were to only be interested in the history of Wikis...but I don't know who would possibly buy this book being interested in solely the HISTORY of Wikis rather than using them for practical purposes or functionality. You could get this (or similar) books at a library, or simply look the information up online...in a WIKI!

I'd give it 3.x stars if I could - just wanted to be clear on the reasoning behind the rating so that hopefully this synopsis/review will be helpful to others.

4.0 von 5 Sternen The wiki way of writing 1. Januar 2010
Von Kirk Bailey - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Taschenbuch Verifizierter Kauf
Hand written scrolls were old tech. Print press was new tech. Costs were reduced, but the functionality remained the same- words. Roll one end of scroll, unroll the other, flow down one big long page with eyes and read. Books from press, turn pages and read down page.

Now add brains to book. Page is any length, but does not have to be long. Pages can link directly to any other page. Page can search for any reference to itself and give you a list of them for you to choose to visit and read. Page can search book for word or phrase. Book is easy to write, no geek blood required. THAT LAST IS IMPORTANT.

Now take away the paper. My netbook can store more pages than I could print on ONE METRIC TON OF COPIER PAPER and have plenty of room left over.

THAT is a wiki.

This book contains a CD with a number of example wiki's on it, which may or may not work properly now, as they are a number of years old and Perl and python have changed significantly since the CD was compiled for this book, but a code-smith can update them as needed.

A wiki is the new Gutenberg press.

2.0 von 5 Sternen Flawed book for administrators 24. Mai 2007
Von Steve Sowder - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Taschenbuch Verifizierter Kauf
This is book is definitely intended for administrators. Witness about the 30 pages on how to use a wiki. How to install: 36 pages. Structuring the content, hacking the code and understanding what you find: 140 pages. Administration tools: 55 pages. There are some examples of wiki use in education and business. The included CD has mangled code. Even after writing a perl program to convert, it looked like it was at least trying to work but wasn't.

3.0 von 5 Sternen Not what I had hoped for 27. April 2007
Von B. Arnold - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Taschenbuch Verifizierter Kauf
I was hoping for a lot of examples, hints, and tricks on how to create and format a wiki. While the book gave some hints on formatting, this book is more for someone who is administering a wiki site and not a regular user. If you just want tips and techniques on creating a personal or work wiki article, you can get more help from the wikipedia on the internet and you'll save some money too.

4.0 von 5 Sternen good introduction to wiki concepts but assumes perl 9. September 2003
Von Frank Carver - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Taschenbuch
A "Wiki" is a web site, where every page is editable, by anybody with a browser. It may seem wierd, but it's a very powerful, and successful, idea. The most well-known Wiki has been running since 1994 with thousands of users.
This book covers how and why Wiki works, case studies of use, and installing, configuring, and customizing an open-source Wiki supplied on CD. If you know a little about Wiki, and want more, this is a great book. It's sprinkled with practical advice and gives real code examples for enhancements. It can also be inspirational and has got me buzzing with ideas. It has a fine index and all the "tips" are listed for easy reference.
Wiki's obscurity is its greatest weakness, though. If you have never heard the term "Wiki", you would never think to pick up this book. I also found that the assumption of Perl in the example software sections clashed with the language independent nature of the theory and case-study sections. And beware that the book ignores or glosses over a few things which require more effort than in other systems.
If you find it clumsy or slow to get things on a web site, if you are looking for an easy way to let people collaborate, or if you just want to make sense of all your scattered notes, read this book.
