WikiWikiWeb

The [Wiki]first ever wiki site was founded in 1994 as an automated supplement to the [Wiki]PortlandPatternRepository. The site was immediately popular within the pattern community, largely due to the newness of the internet and a good slate of [Wiki]InvitedAuthors. The site was, and remains, dedicated to [Wiki]PeopleProjectsAndPatterns.

[Wiki]WardCunnigham created the site and the WikiWikiWeb machinery that operates it. He chose wiki-wiki as an alliterative substitute for quick and thereby avoided naming this stuff quick-web. An early page, [Wiki]WikiWikiHyperCard, traces wiki ideas back to a [Wiki]HyperCard stack he wrote in the late 80's.
