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
