The wiki is proprietary: If the situation of your company changes in the future (good or bad),there is always the chance someone will pull the plug.
The money thing: I am still amazed about RapidMiner and I wish you (truly) success with your courses and the enterprise edition (also I am not able to afford it (yet )). Knowledge is money (it is as it is), so maybe you are not going to be too amazed about a well written and somehow complete wiki.
I am somehow disappointed about the community of RapidMiner. A lot of people jump in to ask questions, but only few are trying to answer or to participate generally (jump by for a little talk for example). This may not be obvious at the moment, but it was in the old sourceforge forum. So the question raises: WHO is going to write articles for the wiki ?

We don't have a problem with this as long as it helps to let the community grow and helps other users. As I said: I am sure that we still know even more than the things which could and probably would be written and we could provide this additional amount of knowledge together with our experience to our customers.
And here I fully agree: there only few people who step by on a regular base. But Data Mining is a highly specialized field and only few people work on it. There are also (related) communities like statistics and also communities built around other products so I find it quite natural that the group of "core users" grows only slowly.
But some people simply have to start and others will follow as the information grows. I also do not think that there is a good data mining wiki around in the net but we could start to build it and other people will follow then.
