Personal Wikis


To me, a personal wiki is (currently) a kind of digital form of a commonplace book - that is, an electronic scrapbook to record my thoughts along with snippets of things I see or hear elsewhere.

The purpose is to help me note-take, organise my thoughts, and think through new things. A type of personal knowledge management, I suppose.

I like the idea of calling a personal wiki a digital commonplace book, as there is lots of history to draw on from commonplace books.

I tend to use commonplace book, personal wiki, and knowledge base fairly interchangebly.
