Wiki turns 18 on 25 March 2013
- join the party and share your celebration articles, cake images and videos!
is a space for celebrating the founding of wikis. On March 25th 1995, Ward Cunningham launched the very first wiki community as an experiment within the context of the Portland Pattern Repository (source) via Basturea.com. This makes that day the original wiki birthday, but we also like to celebrate the founding anniversary's of all kinds of different wikis. Wiki birthdays are a moment to stop and remember the history of the technology and way of working that is wiki, and how it all got started.
