Wikis of Locality: Insights from the Open Guides.
In: ACM 2006 International Symposium on Wikis: WikiSym '06, 21-23 August 2006, Odense, Denmark.
In this paper we describe an emerging form of wikis - wikis of locality – that support physical rather than virtual communities. We draw on our experience as administrators of the Open Guide to Milton Keynes, one of the Open Guides family of community developed local information guides built using wiki software, and present observations of the potential value and unique characteristics of wikis of locality from a practitioner’s perspective. Preliminary findings from a current survey of other Open Guide administrators are presented to highlight types of usage, issues and potential areas for future research.
