If you use wiki for yourself only, you're missing a lot of the social power of the medium. It's like comparing your diary with a newspaper: One reader, one author – instead of many people interacting.

Sometimes however, a personal wiki can be the right thing to get started.

Here are some impressions.

All wikis mentioned here should work out of the box and be really easy to use for beginners. They should not depend on the existance of a webserver, either because they don't need one, or because they include one. Good looks by default and easy administration (or none required) are a must. Writing your own CSS should not be required.

This list should not try to replace Wiki:PersonalWiki. What we want here is a recommendation for people looking for a personal wiki and provide a comparison between the various candidates we recommend.
