Back in time… First developed in 1994/95 by Ward Cunningham Hawaiian word ‘WikiWiki’ means fast First named as Wiki Wiki Web Later shortened to ‘Wiki’ Cunningham said. " So after I did about 25 pages, I said this is really quick. And I was going to call it QuickWeb, kind of like QuickBase. Then I remembered from my trips to Hawaii the term wikiwiki, which meant quickly, quickly. I liked that alliteration: wikiwiki Web—kind of like the worldwide Web ." http://www.eweek.com/article2/0,1895,1939982,00.asp [ March 20, 2006]
