WikiWikiWeb

The [Wiki]first ever wiki site was founded 1995-03-25 as an automated supplement to the [Wiki]PortlandPatternRepository (see [Wiki]History). 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]WardCunningham created the site and his WikiWikiWeb machinery that operates it. He chose wiki-wiki as an alliterative substitute for quick and thereby avoided naming this site quick-web. An early page, [Wiki]WikiWikiHyperCard, traces wiki ideas back to a [Wiki]HyperCard stack he wrote in the late 80's.
