Wikis are like a curiosity cabinet that has the potential to lead to more curiosity cabinets than you could have imagined. Wikis establish a place like curiosity cabinets -- that of a collection of items (or words or articles, etc.) that can be used to form a more cohesive theme or idea once put in the same place. The linking of materials to other materials (or the collection of multiple extraordinary items) is what makes wikis great and useful (and what made curiosity cabinets so great and useful). However, the space that wikis establish is more accessible and focused more on helping each other, whereas curiosity cabinets were initially less accessible and more focused on education. Both accept -- no, thrive -- on the unique and extraordinary. -DanielleNicholson
