Ward Cunningham describes a wiki as “the simplest online database that
could possibly work”. The cost of this simplicity is that wikis are
generally limited to a single collection containing a single kind of
record (viz. WikiMarkupLanguage records). WikiD extends the Wiki model
to support multiple WikiCollections containing arbitrary schemas of XML
records with minimal additional complexity. Furthermore, displays and
services can be customized on a per-collection basis.
