How to Make Use of Wikis at Work

Not sure what a wiki is or how to make productive use of one? Lifehack.org serves up five ways to use a wiki at work, including a virtual water-cooler for employees, a work-related FAQ, and a repository for operations guides:.

As fast as you can put down information on what to do in a certain situation at work, it changes. Right? "If the A server goes down, reboot the router." No-- scribble, scribble-- Manuals are dead. If I owned a wiki company, I'd sell tee shirts that said "paper is dead." Wiki-fy your operations manuals (and sure, print them once a month to keep an offline copy, should power go out).
Have you leveraged wikis in your workplace? If so, tell us how! Click the Comments link up top and share your wiki wisdom.
