I want to set up a multi-user blog / wiki resource for sharing information privately. What's the best way? [more inside]
I'd like to build a publicly editable online database. Each record of the database will consist of images and a few bits of meta data and maybe some Flickr-style tags. I don't have the skills to build a custom database nor the money to pay someone to build it. Is a wiki the way to go?

If I remove the "publicly editable" requirement, would a plain ol' WordPress blog with tags be the cleanest option?
