A Wiki Reading List

After several years of wiki promotion and use, I forget the many steps it took me to understand why wikis are useful — and the (so) many times I had to ask my teams to stop inserting their thoughts and comments in a “reply all”  email and instead document the discussion collaboratively in a wiki.

And so I decided to go through the many books that I’ve read and used to understand this topic, and decided to publish the list in a blog post… since I do not have a personal wiki.

If you have found better books, please comment — and maybe we can start a wiki about wiki books…

1. Wikipatterns by Stewart Mader

2. Wikinomics: How Mass Collaboration Changes Everything by Don Tapscott, Anthony D. Williams

3. Blogs, Wikis, MySpace, and More: Everything You Want to Know About Using Web 2.0 but Are Afraid to Ask by Terry Burrows

4. Groundswell: Winning in a World Transformed by Social Technologies by Charlene Li, Josh Bernoff

(Note: these are the books that I like, for example Clay Shirky is not here).
