WikiWikiWeb was Launched

First Ever Wiki

WikiWikiWeb was Launched

The WikiWikiWeb is launched in 25th of March 1995. The WikiWikiWeb is the first ever wiki or user editable website. It was invented by the programmer Ward Cunningham, to  accompany the Portland Pattern Repository website discussing software design pattern. The WikiWikiWeb originally also applied to the wii software that operated the website, written in Perl programming language and later renamed to “WikiBase”. The site is frequently referred to by its users as simply “Wiki”.

The software and website were developed in 1994 by Cunningham in order to make the exchange of ideas between programmers easier. The concept was based on the ideas developed in HyperCard stacks that Cunningham built in the late 1980s. On March 25, 1995, he installed the software on his company's (Cunningham & Cunningham) website, c2.com. Cunningham came up with the name WikiWikiWeb because he remembered a Honolulu International Airport counter employee who told him to take the Wiki Wiki Shuttle.
