The GNHLUG web is a web-based collaboration tool.

GNHLUG is a cgi-bin script written in Perl. It reads a text file, hyperlinks it and converts it to HTML on the fly. The point is to:

  • make the text editing process very simple ( click on the Edit link at the bottom of the page )
  • and to find information fast ( WebSearch ).

In addition to being quick, GNHLUG also aspires to Zen ideals generally labeled WabiSabi. Zen finds beauty in the imperfect and ephemeral. When it comes down to it, that's all you need.

What does the name TWiki stand for?

  • Wiki wiki means quick in Hawai'ian. They call the shuttle at the Honolulu airport the wiki wiki bus.
  • TWiki is the short form of TakeFive Wiki . (Later on I found out that Twiki is the name of a robot in a Buck Rogers TV show in 1979)

GNHLUG is one of many WikiWikiClones; the first one was built by Ward Cummingham,
