Does 'wiki' in Wikipedia come from Hawaiian wiki?
It comes from the Hawaiian phrase "wiki wiki" which means quick. Ward Cunningham is generally recognized as the first to use this term in the mid 1990s and a wiki allowed you to change content much quicker than the the traditional method (at that time) of using a special program like FrontPage to generate HTML content.
