Riding on the wiki hype curve

The new Google Trends is an interesting tool which allows you to view different keywords and how popular they've been over time.

Looking at this curve for wikis, it certainly seems that interest in wikis is growing rapidly. Much more than in blogs, for example (which have been growing, too).

I have certainly noticed the same trend with JSPWiki. We've had a steady, growing flow of new people on the mailing list, and download rates are growing nicely. We're also getting new developers to help with the work, so much that it's being less and less "my project" and becoming a real community-based open source thingy. Which is very, very nice.



Somehow the top city and region does not surprise me :-)
