Sitepoint has a great article on What is a Wiki?, explaining what a wiki is (duh), a bit of history on them and just what they can do. The brilliant thing about wikis is their ability to allow you to collaborate easily on website without the need for people to know HTML, or even have to set up user accounts.

To be able to get a handle on wikis, there is a single-file program called Notebook that you can download to run on your local computer (you don't need a webserver). This is great to get a feel for how a wiki works, and it also works well as a personal ideas manager where you can store just about anything you like. Download it and try it out.

Some interesting examples of wikis on the web:
