Ward's Home Page

Ward is the creator and web master of the Wiki Wiki Web, where many ideas for this wiki emanated from.

Standalone Perl code QuickiWiki ("a desktop wiki") released with publication of TheWikiWay (Addison-Wesley, 2000), coauthored with BoLeuf. Ref home http://wiki.org (leads to other open sites).

I just want to sincerely thank Ward for providing all the root ideas behind this and many other wikis, as well as freely sharing ideas and insights with me.-- Steven Black
Ward now works at Microsoft. See http://www.c2.com/cgi/wiki?TipsForWardAtMicrosoft -- Craig Berntson

He's gone from Microsoft and now works at the open-source Eclipse Foundation -- Ted Ernst

SQLSummit.com is running an audio interview with Ward in which he says he believes Eclipse is mastering in a big way what wiki mastered in a small way.
