I have written about my wiki implementation in the past. We use Mediawiki, the same open source software that drives the most famous wiki of them all, Wikipedia. Initially loading content into your wiki can be an enormous task, but Open Office, another popular open source tool, makes this task much less cumbersome. The latest version of Open Office Writer 2.3 has the ability to export documents to Mediawiki markup code. We used this to upload hundreds of existing pages of content into our wiki.

If you don't use Mediawiki, have no fear. You can always download an Open Office add-on called Uniwakka to convert your documents to the wiki format of your choice. If you are interesting in launching a wiki in your organization I recommend you read Stewart Mader's 21 Days of Wiki Adoption.

Use OpenOffice.org
