Well, I think it's cool anyway.

is a super simple, extremely clean route to having, what you always wanted (admit it), your very own wiki
. Just enter your username and email address, and wait for the password to be sent to you, and you're off and running. No need for your own web space, no messing around with CGI, PHP or Python, and if you're worried that the site will vanish and take your stuff with it, you can even download your entire wiki in a ZIP file. It's not the first
free wiki farm
out there, but it's just about as simple and clean as one can get.
But what do you do with it once you have one? I've been using a personal wiki for keeping track of ideas, places and characters for a (rather sprawling) novel project; the simplified page markup of a wiki combined with easy hyperlinking make them great for brainstorming. You could also start up a game of Lexicon
, which is well-suited for play on a wiki
, and as previously seen
in these parts. Or, you know, you could just start your own Everything
. (Originally found on bOINGbOING
