[Air-l] wiki tool suggestion?

Hi Radhika

I used pmwiki ( http://www.pmwiki.org/ )for a community informatics workshop - 
http://kmi.open.ac.uk/events/ci2005/

it worked really well. 

You need to install it on a machine you have ftp access to that's running php and can webserve php pages, but you don't need mysql or similar. I found that I could set it up and tweak it quite a bit just knowing my way round html code.

So probably in the middle between setting up a wikipedia style fully fledged wiki, and using a bit of space on somebody else's server.

good luck!
