When I heard the term "Wiki" and "Wiki Web" on this PBS forum, I admit it was the first time I encountered such a term... despite the fact I'm an IT (Information Technology) manager! Apparently the idea came about in the mid 1990s. Doing a search on GOOGLE comes up with a wealth of hits. But I was still wondering about the unusual word "Wiki" and it's derivation, thinking it must be one of the ubiquitous acronyms that plague us these days. I was wrong. Searching on "wiki" and "acronyms" on google, I came across this... ================================================= OK - But what does the abbreviation/acronym wiki actually stand for? It's not an abbreviation or an acronym. "Wiki" is borrowed from "wiki-wiki" -- Hawaiian for "quick". ================================================= Thanks for making the web wiki available for PBS image posting. I think it'll be useful. But I wonder how it leaves the status of using Bulb_Images on Yahoo Groups?
