Collaborative: To work with others for a specific purpose in a shared work area
A wiki provides capability far beyond blog capabilities, such as collaborative documentation with versioning (easily roll-back to previous versions, see who changed what, etc.), collaborative knowledgebase building, etc...

guests with the GUEST logins can also participate in a wiki if the space administrator adds their guest login to the space permissions.
