"TWiki announced a new version of it's popular collaboration tool on Monday 01 May 2000. The tool allows you to set up a dynamic intranet site and a knowledge base; manage documents and collaborate with your community by using just a web browser."

"TWiki looks and feels like a normal Intranet or Internet web site. However it also has an Edit link at the bottom of every web page, everybody can change a page or add content. TWiki is a CGI script written in Perl. It takes text input, hyperlinks it and converts it to HTML on the fly. Features include automatic link generation, full text search, page revision control, page locking, email notification of changes, file attachments to web pages, user preferences and more. TWiki depends on Unix, Perl 5, RCS and a web server with CGI support like Apache."

"TWiki is designed to eliminate the 'one webmaster syndrome' where intranet content is outdated and insufficient" said Peter Thoeny, the author of TWiki. "Empowering employees to make changes to the intranet, combined with a peer review of content makes sure that content is up to date and accurate. Some major companies in the telecommunication and consumer product industries depend on TWiki to have a smooth information flow between the corporate offices."
