The US Department of Defense Enterprise Social Network milSuite began life as simple wiki supporting the move of US Army acquisition organizations from Ft. Monmouth, NJ to Aberdeen Proving Grounds, MD. As the wiki's use grew and others increasingly expressed interest in using wikis, the team providing the wiki faced a choice: become a provider of wikis and set up wiki farms, or expand the single wiki to the enterprise. In this talk I will explore the history and the evolution of this early wiki into what is now milWiki.
