I really wanted to give Wikis a chance, after all the buzz they have generated in the past few years. I knew that Gabe and Tycho had set one up for their Elementstor Saga, so I decided to check it out in more detail. They used a service called PBWiki so I gave it a try. The PBWiki syntax is compelling, more than just a variation of WikiWikiWeb, and much more like a truncated blend of Wiki, Textile and Markdown. I immediately signed up for their premium service.
