Woofing carries minimal information content and is mainly about the assertion of power. While volume matters, the loud woof of one dog is less significant than the low rumble from the leader of a large dog pack. Woofing is a simple language with only three principle concepts: "do!", "go!", and "look!"
The core wiki concept circles around the idea to utilize a minimum set of functions. Only the functionality should be implemented that is necessary to make a web collaboration tool practical and easy to learn and use. It means to create a tool as simple as possible, both in code and user interaction.
