PBwiki: From the Ground Up!

At an all-night SuperHappyDevHouse event in May 2005, David Weekly spent seven hours coding a simple hosted wiki service from concept to production-available.

Within 48 hours of launching, PBwiki was adopted by over a thousand groups as news of the service spread on blogs like LifeHacker and BoingBoing. PBwiki is extremely easy to use; as name suggests, it's as easy as making a peanut butter sandwich.

As of today PBwiki:

  • Runs 500,000 wikis for millions of montly users.
  • Supports 30,000 businesses, including AT&T, Wal-Mart, and a third of the Fortune 500.
  • Has 24+ fulltime employees and several part-timers and contractors.
  • Has received $2.5 million funding from Ron Conway, Seraph Group and Mohr Davidow.
