What's a Wiki?

If you know the answer, you may be able to help the Foundation find a good one.

We are looking for a Wiki that is free or inexpensive -- and above all -- flexible and easy-to-use for our internal planning. We have dozens of people spread around the globe we need to coordinate, and the Wiki format looks like it could fit the job. (Especially if looks like a word processor to the user, and "special codes" aren't required.)
