AcroWiki derives its name from the Hawaiian word "Wikiwiki" which means «fast, speedy, to hurry, hasten, quick, swift». The online hypertext collaboration system with same name was invented around 1995 by Ward Cunningham. The simplicity and the power of the system made it popular and it is currently used by many organizations like SAP, Disney, Motorola. There are numerous implementations in different programming languages. If you want to know more about Wiki you should read the "Wiki Way".
What is "AcroWiki"?
AcroWiki is yet another implementation of WikiWiki, this time for Palm Pilot. There are several variations of the WikiWiki syntax, the one we used is the same one that is used in the popular Wiki engine called "Twiki". One of the main Wiki features is collaboration. Indeed on your Palm you are the only person editing your memos. But you can sync them to your desktop and publish them online using one of the other Wiki engines for Web. Even without sharing, we found the Wiki syntax to be so easy to use that it becomes perfect way to keep personal notes.
