Word Processors

Wikis aren't word processors Word processors are writing to individual pieces of paper, non-digitized, non-networked. Wiki pages are digital, networked, linked, changeable.

This difference can be hard to get past. Even digital natives are paper trained. It takes some cognitive effort to make a break in thinking off the page, much less practice working off the page.

We don't need to rehearse the virtues of paper here. We can consider the position of word processing software with respect to wikis and blogs, however.
