  18. Customers “We actually just started hosting DokuWiki last week. A

    good, simple, hosted wiki would have been nice, or something we could have deployed to Heroku.” - Jesse Cooke
  19. Customers “Yes, we do use an internal wiki and yes,

    we would consider using a hosted version.” - Jeff Gardner “[We use] Google sites at the moment but we've gone through a few.”
  20. Customers “We currently have a simple Rails app that we

    use to share our internal information. It does feel a little cumbersome sometimes, I must admit.” - Carlos Souza “Love where you are going with this.” “I'd be happy to try it out and give you some feedback :)”
  21. Customers - We don't use a wiki (yet) - Yes,

    would consider a hosted solution. - Noah Davis “We're too small at the moment to really think too hard on a wiki, but we'll want an uber simple one. Yours seems to fit that bill, perhaps we'd give yours a shot.”
