OneNote is a personal solution, with peer-to-peer sharing functionality.

Chris Pratley, Group Program Manager for OneNote blogged about their wiki functionality: Isn't this just a wiki? Yes and No. A wiki is great because of the same sort of thing - everyone can read what others have added and modify it if it is wrong or incomplete. But a wiki still forces you to get a write lock+ on an article or page unless you want to deal with the risk of it getting modified while you are making your changes. And then merging the changes is a manual process if that happens. And wikis do not support offline - that's a killer benefit and in fact the really hard part. Not to mention that the OneNote writing surface is much richer than a wiki: pictures, annotations, drawings, ink, embedded documents, etc. Wikis are also hard to get a handle on since they can't be "organized". It turns out that having the notebook structure available is very important to show people what is available and how to use the space

  • + Not all wikis require exclusive locking. TWiki, for example merges changes.
  • SyncContrib will sync changes between TWikis.
