'Wiki wiki' means 'quick' in Hawaiian. A Wiki is a collection of hyperlinked pages that are more-or-less freely editable by anyone. The pages use a simplified mark-up language to provide rudimentary text formatting. This wiki's specific language is described by TextFormattingRules. The wiki mark-up language is supposed to be visually oriented such that the mark-up version of the page is an approximate representation of what the formatted version will look like. New pages can be added as needed or desired by clicking on undefined WikiNames.

Wiki principles:

The original Wiki is WardCunningham's Portland Pattern Repository (http://c2.com/cgi/wiki?FrontPage), which deals mainly with various aspects of computer programming. I programmed this wiki in Python (http://python.org) to address unmet needs in a wiki used for molecular protocols.

The source code to this wiki [tentatively "MobiWiki" for "Molecular Biology Wiki"], and all the wiki-file documents in this wiki are covered by the Gnu General Public Licence (http://www.gnu.org/copyleft/gpl.html). A tarball of the source (with the licence in the README file) is available at http://www.paralog.com/MobiWiki.tar.

1This wiki implements some degree of WriteControls so that changes to technically oriented material can be fully vetted before being implemented into the main text.
