Community Informatics in Action!


The following is the message that launched Wikidelphia. For a more recent message, see this flier.

Wikidelphia is up, as a prototype at least, and its startup volunteers are busy about construction, design, and planning! We're looking for more people who would like to help build a structured Wiki for the people of Philadelphia.  We'd like to see Wikidelphia become an easily accessible place to find out a great deal more about what's happening, who lives here, and what we do and think.  It should be an index to the many other Web sites and services as well as a place where more intimate and timely material can be found or linked.

If you love our city and want to help promote a better internal and external understanding of who we are... Wikidelphia needs you!
