Future of SeattleWiki

Hello!

I've started [WWW]seattlewiki.net, and I'm trying to get in touch with the maintainer(s) of this wiki to talk about ways we could team up.

Seattlewiki.net uses LocalWiki ([WWW]http://localwiki.org), which provides really great mapping functionality and other tools that make it perfect for a city wiki. LocalWiki is new software created by the founders of WikiSpot, so it makes sense to give the content on this wiki a new life on the new LocalWiki software.

For more details about why I'm working on SeattleWiki you can read this blog post I wrote:

I'm wondering if it would be a good idea to merge seattle.wikispot.org with seattlewiki.net. Having duplicate wikis isn't a big deal in a city the size of Seattle, but combining the two wikis would help seattlewiki.net have a solid foundation for future growth. Combining the two wikis would also minimize confusion and make things easier for users.

From what I can tell seattle.wikispot.org uses a Creative Commons license, so if we agreed that merging the wikis was a good idea, I think there would be no problem with moving the content over to seattlewiki.net.

Let me know your thoughts on all this. It would be great to talk with other folks that are into civic media.

Please use the Talk page to discuss this.
