PBwikiPBwiki, a really simple wiki collaboration tool which I hadn’t heard of before today, announced this morning that it has raised $2 million from Mohr-Davidow Ventures and $100,000 from Ron Conway and Chris Yeh.

PBwiki is really a tool to make wikis easy, simple, and like peanut butter (therefore the name PB). Pick a subdomain for your wiki and start one with a password. As you feel the need to let others in, just share them your password and they’ll be able to edit that page.

Great for project brainstorming, schools, authors, fanclubs and even for personal use, I’m really interested to see what they can pull up with their extra funding. As the awareness for wikis increases, I think a lot more people are going to start using it. It being a really simple concept to understand from step 1 and with Google’s recognition of it through their acquisition of JotSpot, I think it’s only a matter of time till they get the recognition of perhaps a blog.
