Vade mecum, from the Latin, literally, "go with me", is a small handbook intended to be carried by the owner at all times as a ready reference and memory jogger. TWiki.Vademecum is a wiki intended to become a collaborative web-based reference for members of the School of Informatics @ Edinburgh.
A wiki is a web application that allows users to add content, as on an Internet forum, but also allows anyone to edit the content. The name is based on the Hawaiian term wiki wiki, meaning "quick" or "informal". Sometimes wikiwiki (or Wikiwiki) is used instead of wiki.
