"Wiki" an official English word

If you're still not sure what a "wiki" is, don't fret - now, you can look it up in the dictionary.

"Wiki" may not sound like English, but it's English now, according to Yahoo! News. After several years of tracking and research, "wiki" made the cut and is being included in the Oxford English Dictionary. Read the story at http://news.yahoo.com/s/nm/20070315/wr_nm/britain_dictionary_wiki_dc

The most famous example of the usage of "wiki" is Wikipedia, the biggest multilingual free-content encyclopedia on the Internet. Jimmy Wales, founder of Wikipedia, will be kicking off DigitalNow 2007 with his keynote address about Wikipedia and how it opens the door to new methods of collaborative authoring.
