Interesting, BackPackIt.com seems to be a Wiki for the masses. It is
simple, powerful, and fairly cool. I like the "email this page" and
sharing abilities, although they seem simplistic.
It is apparent that the perfect set of features and feel is emerging for
a number of related activities. I look forward to a nice market of both
commercial and open source solutions. Elegant simplicity makes you want
to start hacking while you wonder why people made things so complicated
