Camp Wiki on Sunday. Add your hometown favorites to our hometown wiki. (Even if you can’t join us, help us spread the word by adding this to your Facebook page or Tweeting!)
The story of Tallahassee will be told by you. And isn’t that as it should be?
We’re hosting CampWiki this Sunday afternoon from 12:30 to 3:30pm at RedEye in Midtown (we’ve rented out the whole place) so we can make TallahasseeWiki come to life as a cutting-edge community tool. We think having a hometown wiki makes Tallahassee a better place to live. Davis, California is where the LocalWiki started and the city is known for it’s wiki. Believe it or not, one in seven residents uses the DavisWiki. The wiki community actually solved a crime (read about it in The New York Times). A hometown wiki makes a city come to life in a way that community guides and telephone books never can.
Creating the same thing for Tallahassee is actually simple, as long as we have your help. Writing pages about things around town you know or are passionate about is EASY and fun. We’ve written pages on Red Hills Horse Trials, Springtime Tallahassee, Winter Festival, Blairstone Greenway, and Songs with Tallahassee (it’s a surprising number). I had fun writing the page on Lake Ella because I learned things I didn’t know about its history. We wrote pages on our neighborhoods, and blogs around town.
CampWiki on Sunday is free, we’ll treat for pizza and drinks, and we’ll have a barista there for you to buy your favorite coffee so that you can be appropriately caffeinated. You can stay for part or all of the session. We’ll show you the basics and we’ll be there to answer your questions as you write pages. By the end of the day, the wiki will be alive and well and part you! Get more information and RSVP (required) online HERE.
