Synchronous group annotations of a text.

I would like my students to add annotations to select online chapters of public domain texts we are reading. Google Docs would work, but I would prefer that the end product be accessible to the world at large, so I don't have to export their work and publish it anew. There are 20 students in the class, and so I'm worried about students overwriting each other's work. Is there a cheap, free wiki installation that can handle multiple, simultaneous edits?

Best hypertext/wiki browser software/freeware 2015?

Creating a collaborative website, and one of my favorite tools in the original version of pbwiki is that you can simply type a word, click a button, and that word instantly became a link to a page of the same name. The updated pbworks doesn't do that, so I'm looking for a new tool. Example inside. [more inside]

Need a simple solution to a Wiki-style contact directory

I work in a medical clinic with a few other doctors, and we're trying to come up with a way to centralize our "favourites" when it comes to referrals -- which specialists do we usually refer to, where can patients go for physiotherapy, etc. I'm trying to find a simple way to implement this but so far not having a lot of success.

How do I upgrade a very obsolete, nonfunctional wiki?

Way back in 2005, I wrote an essay in wiki form using MediaWiki 1.5.1 on my website's third-party server. I did not upgrade it, and consequently it got broken when the server upgraded to an more advanced version of... well, I'm not sure what broke it, but probably MySQL, or PHP, or something. It's no longer supported. The database with its content still exists. Is it possible to get it back? How would I go about doing so? [more inside]

Searchable online personal database?

I am looking for a universally accessible and searchable way to keep notes, photos and other documents together. Essentially I am looking for a personal wiki, but one which behaves more like a note taking program and document archive than content management system. The closest I have come so far is saving drafts in gmail. This seems fraught and rather clumsy. Anyone know of a better system? [more inside]

Wiki platform for potentially confidential/sensitive data

Last year, I asked about a simple wiki platform for many users, and Wiki Spot sounded like a good fit. I slacked off, Wiki Spot is no longer accepting new accounts, and I have additional criteria: some level of security/hiding for confidential and/or sensitive data. Also, I have a Dreamhost account that I'm not utilizing, and DH has a number of wiki platforms that can be installed. Any suggestions for platforms to use or avoid?

Looking for a relational wiki for documentation.

Greetings hive mind! This seems to be something that should already exist, but I think I either haven't found the right type of wiki, or have looked over the feature in one of the many wikis I've tried. Basically, I'm looking to use a wiki for IT documentation purposes...but I'd also like for it to be able to automatically propagate views/pages in a relational manner (either via the backend or via templates). Here's an example to help illustrate: [more inside]

A wiki with an Integrated list-serve?

Simple question, is there a wiki service out there (free) that integrates a list-serv into the wiki itself so as to not have to use two different services for wiki creation and communications? We will mostly be using a list-serv to communicate among our campaign team, but want a repository for documents, lists and meeting minutes, to-do's, etc - all in the same place / URL. Thanks! :>)

What's this piece of pro-liberal / anti-libertarian writing?

I remember reading a long time ago either a blog post or a wiki-looking page linked on the Blue. It was written either to defend American liberalism, show why libertarianism was flawed, or both. The piece was about a person outlining the ways in which society and the US government's "invisible infrastructure" (my term, not theirs), supported his or her everyday life in subtle but essential ways. They included government-built roads, fire departments, and public schools, among other things. What piece is this? Bonus points for finding wherever it was linked from on MeFi. I'd also appreciate links to other seminal short works of pro-liberal and/or anti-libertarian writing. ("Invisible Knapsack" and "If Men Had Periods" come to mind.)

What's the best easy, web based wiki/collective note software out there?

Here's what I need to do: Keep a lot of disparate bits of info in one place. There will be never more than 15 users. I'd like to use it software as service, I don't want to have to worry about hosting it. Bonus points for being mobile friendly and/or having an app. We'd like to be able to jam images and videos in there, too. It doesn't have to be a Wiki, a helpful Evernote plugin or something would be a-okay, also. Just looking for a recommendation!
