Welcome, TWikiGuest!

You have reached a TWikiSite (pronounced twee-kee site). TWiki is a meeting place where people collaborate on common interests. Anyone can contribute using a regular Web browser. TWiki looks like a normal Web site, but it allows (and encourages) everyone to freely edit the pages by contributing questions, answers, comments, changes - ideas can be transformed into published input, instantly. TWiki is very simple to learn and use, and provides possibly the most powerful way to exchange and develop ideas online, in an open, uncomplicated environment.

How TWiki Works

  1. Read: You can treat this site like any other. Browse, and follow interesting links. A couple of hints:
  2. Create an Account: To be able to write new content on this site, you'll need to create an account for yourself. It's simple, and only takes a minute: just visit TWikiRegistration and fill out the form. This will also create your personal home page.
  3. Write: If you have something to say, speak your mind! Anyone can change or add to anything they see written in a TWiki topic. You can edit a topic from within your browser, using TWikiShorthand, a very simple markup language (you can also use HTML if you like, but you'll usually find you can get the same results more easily with TWikiShorthand). To contribute:
  4. Do you find this...scary?! Anybody can do anything! That's not how things are usually done. It's...uncontrollable. And yet, collaborating in the Wiki way works! Try it out for even a couple of minutes. Take a look at WikiCulture. (And then, with TWiki, you can define fine-grained TWikiAccessControl, based on users and groups, whenever and wherever you feel its necessary, across a site, a web, or page by page, if you like. And there's also full revision control that retains all changes, for good measure!)
  5. Experiment: To get your virtual hands dirty, visit Sandbox web, where you can try out anything at all, in a consequence-free environment!
  6. Create a link: To link to another topic, start by editing an existing topic.
  7. Create a topic:
  8. See the history of a topic: Click the Diffs link on the control strip at the bottom of every page to see a complete history of edits for that topic.
  9. Attach files: Use your browser to upload and attach any type of file to a topic using the Attach link at the bottom of the page.
  10. Organize: Use TWikiForms to include specific information with individual topics - for example, classify pages by subject, status, or date.
  11. Learn more: TWikiTutorial takes you on a 20-minute tour of the TWiki essentials. WikiReferences links to selected articles and books about online collaboration, and Wiki technology in particular.
