According to Wikipedia, wikis are websites that "provide collaborative modification of its content and structure directly from the web browser." In other words, a website that can be collectively edited by all of its online users. One of the most popular Wikis - by far - is Wikipedia itself, a name almost synonymous with the greater concept of Wikis.  It has amassed well over 5 million articles in the 16 years since its start, and it continues to grow and grow.

Last December, local television reporter and news anchor Michelle Lee retired after almost 40 years as a broadcaster.  Within a few weeks, she boarded a bus with a crowd of other Northlanders and headed for Washington DC.
