Check out http://c2.com/cgi/wiki?WikiWikiWeb .
It's a real interesting idea. Somewhat like Porkchop but a lot less structure. Beware though you can get lost in it.

Wow. That's a fascinatng site. On the one
hand it has no structure, on the other hand it has lots. It's like a writeable WWW.
Wow, again. And thanks Tim.

What I find facinating of course is that the entire web site is just one convoluted database and a PERL program. As you look around the site it gets bigger and bigger. Besides some of the discussions get heady too. Did you get to the Portland Pattern Repository? It's above my head but really interesting.

Not yet, I've been having my mind expanded by the idea of "Extreme Programming". It's a real buzz, too. I'm also the sort of person who contributes as well as reading (as with here), so I've added a few pages and hacked a couple more.
It realy makes me want to set up a similar system for our intranet here at BT.

Yeah that's a real interesting discussion. I thought about setting it up too. Somebody over there said they are working on a Java version that would be cool. Where is BT? Is that the name of a company?

Well, there is a Java version of the test harness system (which I've downloaded, but not looked at yet). Unfortunately its hard to find a Wiki reference to it as its called "JUnit", which doesn't form into a Wiki link.
I've lost where I got it from, but it was on the real web, so try a search engine.

Sorry about that. It's British Telecom, one of the world's largest companies. In my case I work at a software development site affiliated with BT Research Labs near Ipswich
in England.
