Oh, my God. There are wikis everywhere on the Internet today and they seems to get even more by the minute (or sometimes even by the second :) ). You got Million Dollar Wiki, Million Euro Wiki, Five Dollar Wiki, One Buck Wiki, Quarter Wiki and of course the original wiki and mother of all: WikiPedia.org.

The trend of new wikis all the time is reminding me of the trend with Million Dollar Homepage. Do you remember that site? I'm not surprised if you have forgotten about it because most people have. Million Dollar Homepage was a page where you could buy pixles (small pictures of 10 x 10 pixles) linked to any site you wanted. When all the pixles had been sold the owner would have earned a million dollar (less a few percent in payment processing fees).

When the Million Dollar Homepage got attention in the news all around the world the Internet got all filled with all types of pixels selling web sites where you could buy pixels of all kind at all kinds of prices. It didn't take long before all the pixels selling sites started dying and soon everyone had forgotten about them :(

I think we will see the same trend soon with all the Wikis because I saw that one of the bigger wikis is up for sale at SitePoint. I think that indicates that the owner wants to cash in on his work before everyone forgets about his site. What do you think?

Also why would you spend money on buying just one page in a wiki when you can get your own domain name (that you also control) + a blog with hundreds, maybe even thousands of pages, for as little as $1.99 at eXavier.com?
