if you want something simple, possibly to use only for yourself, then you can
use something like TiddlyWiki (http://www.tiddlywiki.com/); you don't need to
install any application or server to use it: the whole wiki fits in one
single html document that could be a file on your computer (i.,e no need to
have a web server), or hosted on the web server of your ISP.
