A wiki is an awesome tool for entering, searching, and displaying
various kinds of information. It's easy to use too. I don't know if
there are any free hosted wikis, but you could certainly put one on your
own server, if that's an option.
There are many wiki products. My favorite is Confluence
(http://www.atlassian.com/software/confluence/), which is a commercial
product, but with a free personal license for one user. My only
objection to it is that I don't think there's a way to export all the
wiki data in a way that it could be used by another app, so you're kind
of bound to that product. It's very polished, though, and the folks at
Atlassian (the software vendor who wrote Confluence) are really sharp
and helpful. They give free licenses to open source projects and user
groups by the way; I just got a free license for a web development study
group in which I participate.
