Bricklin’s WikiCalc: Very Cool

Andrew MacNeill – AKSEL Solutions posts “Just saw this over on zdNet but then wanted to try it out.

Wikis aren’t just for group blogging or information – now you’ve got a live application for it as well.”

Wikis are a great way for collaborative effort at building up knowledge online. Witness the mother-of-all wikis at WikiPedia. But each of the hundreds of wiki software packages out there has its own markup language, or worse, no language at all.

The software is at version zero-point-one alpha stage, but the concepts are cool. Check it out.
