Featured Media

LocalWiki - collaborative, community-owned local media! from Philip Neustrom on Vimeo.

To create an easy-to-use open source "wiki" platform tailored to the needs of local communities

Based on the successful DavisWiki.org in Davis, Calif., this project will create enhanced tools for local wikis, a new form of media that makes it easy for people to learn — and share — their own unique community knowledge. Members will be able to post articles about anything they like, edit others and upload photos and files. This grant will help create the specialized open-source software that makes the wiki possible and help communities develop, launch and sustain local wiki projects.
