Why not Evernote (etc.)?

  1. Not public.
  2. Doesn't have links between pages. Links work pretty well on the web. Links match how we put things together in our own head: they allow more complex organisation of information.
  3. No (sane) collaborative options. A personal wiki that's on the web can be selectively open to allow collaboration from others on particular pages.

Problems with other personal wikis

  • Solutions like VoodoPad are tied to particular OSes (Mac OS X, iOS). The web browser is universal.
  • Some personal wiki systems don't have version control and/or store data in binary blobs. The latter prevents the use of Git/SVN etc. for effective version control. MediaWiki has it built in.
