Welcome to GetWiki, a Wiki for the Humanities and Sciences, and "meta" topics, from Metaphysics to Metadata, running the easy-to-use GetWiki software.

The website, first known as "GetMeta", was launched in April, 2004 as a testing platform for Wikinfo, which at that time ran GetWiki software. GetWiki thus serves both as a software demo for the GetWiki codebase (essentially 3.0 now), as well as a Philosophy wiki in its own right. GetWiki uses an open editorial policy, and imports articles via XML from Pseudopedia, as it did originally and famously starting in 2004. So, where you see green links here instead of blue, the site can be extended by importing the green-linked article. The site focuses on verifiable information on intellectual issues, technology, and interaction, a document collaboration platform, discussion forum, and features unique applications.

GetWiki both software and concept: An open-source, feature-rich, secure, standards-based Wiki/Weblog for "getting" content onto your website, and diverse subjects related to Philosophy and the Humanities, Logic, Science, Technology, Interactive Programming, Intellectual Property, and other subjects. Quality is more important here than merely the number of articles.InterWiki Theory in general has been a strong influence on GetWiki's development, which sports many of the same features deployed in GetWiki 1.0, such as XML import of individual articles, with XHTML and CSS document and accessibility standards, as well as developments from "Plug", the related software developed for rimric.com. Today, GetWiki and Plug are merged and also serve the mrmparrott.com and rimric.com websites in a HTML/CSS responsive "masonry" design.
