This is an insanely early preview of the new version of LocalWiki. We're making everything open as we build, but there's not much to see here yet.
Feel free to share with your friends, but not too widely — we are a long way away from launching!

January 2013 - June 2013

I'm actually in the San Francisco Bay Area at the moment, and have been editing pages on SFWiki and Oakland Wiki while I'm here, um, there.

May 19 2013 - Edit Note

Right now, working to do three things ad seriatim ( in sequence or sequentially ):

  1. Create a neighbourhood map for Every neighbourhood page.
  2. Replace the many template-based neighbourhood pages with organic descriptions, and include pages tagged with name of same neighbourhood.
  3. Once all 240 or so neighbourhood maps are done, go back and tag each wiki page with its neighbourhood name.
  4. Visually visit every page and create a map if appropriate. Map or not, will tag each page with its neighbourhood or category or at least one tag that makes sense. This can be step 3 instead of 4.
  5. Prior to LocalWiki's ability to allow tagging of pages, many pages were created as simply lists. Go back and re-evaluate what to do with each of those to make them LocalWiki native rather than legacy design.
