makes it possible for a loose-knit group of people to collaborate on creating a Web site. That's what we 're [[Project: goals and non-goals| trying to do]] here: create a free, complete, up-to-date and reliable world-wide travel guide. Wiki is the tool we 're using to do that.
Because the barrier to editing pages is ''so low'', people feel comfortable (we hope) making small changes or adding entirely new articles. Wiki doesn't require some kind of long registration process. People can create [[Project:How to create a user account|user accounts]] if they want to have an identity in the community, but they don't have to if they don't want.
Nor is there any kind of '''editorial''' vetting process. Editing is ''distributed'' -- anyone can do it. If anyone sees an error on a page, they can just fix it. That's it! Everyone's knowledge comes in in real-time -- just when travellers need it.
