A funny thing landed on my desk today. It's a good example of how much people love banding about all the Web 2.0 buzz words but don't have any idea what they mean :)

I have actually seen this done a lot. Theres a mod for MediaWiki on Sourceforge that essentially turns it into a CMS.

Whoever wrote that diagram is a bit of an idiot :D

Some wikis require signup and approval to be able to edit anything. Many have protected pages as well, like the Wikipedia homepage, or from my experience, many pages in the Zenwalk wiki. So this isn't such an outlandish idea.

Protected means read only ;)
And write only means you can only add to it, never look at what anyone else has added.

That's not possible...

A wiki is a web application designed to allow multiple authors to add, remove, and edit content.
If you can't edit it, it's not a wiki.
