A category is a page, and the set of pages which link to that page. The value of this is that you can easily examine the Back Links and thus determine the set of pages in the category.
So, all pages talking about, say, ninjas could be in Category Ninja; looking at the Back Links to Category Ninja would then list them.
Categories can be a powerful tool to organise a wiki, but there's no need to categorise everything.
There is a relationship between Categories And Indices.
Note that a list of categories can be found either by looking at the pages in this category (which is nicely meta), or by carrying out a suitable Wiki Title Search (<http://urchin.earth.li/cgi-bin/twic/wiki/titlesearch.pl?q=%3CCategory>).
