"no-one knows they need an "investing wiki" or a "CAPS" but they know they need the definition to margin call because they're reading an article about it right now."

Jeremy, I think the power of the Wiki is its instant availability.

Almost anything you can name is in Fooldom's massive files somewhere. The FAQs. The excellent articles. But you can spend much time looking for what you need when you want it. And sadly, many users don't bother to look. They just post a question--if they dare.

But Wiki gives you instant answers for what does that mean. Tell me more. The links to referenced articles, links to related terms, and category entries give access to as much detail as the reader needs and if appropriate can take you all the way to the beginners level. Or it can take you to the expert level and the most esoteric aspects of the subject.

It's all extremely available, convenient, fast and efficient. A very powerful tool.
