Confluence, the Enterprise Wiki, Releases Free Personal License for Individuals
Is it just me, or does this seem a bit contradictory?
Confluence, the enterprise wiki, is from down-undah...but this is really upside down. "Atlassian Software Systems today announced the introduction of free personal licenses for their highly successful knowledge management product, Confluence, the enterprise wiki." Why couldn't they say they have free personal licenses of their wiki, "Confluence?"....why is it "Confluence, the enterprise wiki?"
Like "Star Trek, the Next Generation" and "Casper, the friendly Ghost" - it's descriptive!
Pardon my rant, I am a fan of the wiki...so here's the scoop on Confluence, the enterprise wiki. "Confluence builds on the original wiki concept to deliver a knowledge management solution that retains the ease and simplicity of a traditional wiki whilst introducing enterprise features. Fine grained security, detailed content versioning, email integration, blogging, brilliant searching (including searching within attachments) and professional technical support are just some examples. Confluence is also in fact an 'über-wiki', allowing users to create unlimited 'spaces', where each space forms an independently managed wiki."
Also note the upcoming Content Management conference that features a keynote on wikis.
