I see here a key difference in this discussion. One is the open wiki
like Wikipedia. The other is a corporate blog or wiki. The
implementation is similar, but inside a company, the wiki contains
information from trusted sources about *your* project.
It provides a forum and a structure to communicate and share information
as a team.
And in fact, there are many companies who are providing wiki and blog
structure for companies to work in a structured collaborative
environment outside of the open source options.
