Let's Make A Wiki Neighborhood

This is a past event


The city's dotNeighborhoods are available for the taking (sort of (http://www1.nyc.gov/site/forward/initiatives/dotnyc/domain-requests.page)). We've long suggested that a wiki should be a key component of a civicly effective dotNeighborhood; where neighbors contribute their knowledge to a Wikipedia-like database of local information. (See one New Yorker's vision for a dotNeighborhood (http://www.connectingnyc.org/things-i-want-for-my-neighborhood-nyc/).)

Will it be Astoria.nyc, Bensonhurst.nyc, Corona.nyc, Ditmars.nyc, Elmhurst.nyc, Flushing.nyc, GreenwichVillage.nyc, Harlem.nyc ...

We're going to reach out for a pilot neighborhood at next week's WikiWednesday Salon and Skill-Share. It's part of a regular monthly event sponsored by Wikimedia-New York. See its site: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Wikipedia:Meetup/NYC. (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Wikipedia:Meetup/NYC)

"WikiWednesday is for everyone, at all levels of wiki experience. The Wiki-salon and knowledge-sharing workshop downtown in Greenwich Village and includes pizza, refreshments, and video games in the Babycastles gallery."

WikiWednesday welcomes all those from the education, museum, library, and nonprofit worlds, and from everyone in any community interested in building a bigger, broader and better Wikipedia.

At this month's meeting we'll provide the city's wikipedians with an opportunity to nominate and join in developing a dotNeighborhood.
