The WikiCity Project is an on-line publisher providing local content on places, events, and people which could be of interest to those associated with any of the 22,000 U.S. towns it covers. It serves these communities much like a collection of city guides, yet as a wiki, any of its readers are allowed to contribute content. With over 13 million pages, the WikiCity Project ranks as one of the largest wikis in the world. The WikiCity Project encourages, but does not require users to register to contribute.

History

The WikiCity Project began in 2009, and is led by Patrick Lazure and Rohit Keshwani. Each of the 22,154 towns follows a similar format, offering local news, a community calendar, free classified ads, a directory with links to most all local businesses, and local history. This project is also the first wiki to use Twitter as a tool to index content. The extension that enables this is located at MediaWiki. The WikiCity Project was acquired by the Omaha World-Herald on October 27, 2009.[1]
