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.
