Hi, I'm Stan Pokras, the "Instigator" for Community Magic and our fabulous Wikidelphia.
     Wikidelphia is the ultimate tool for crowdsourcing Philadelphia's wonderful resources.
     The site uses a unique category tool that organizes lists of pages by top level tags such as "Is" that organizes by what something is. The top category "Does" indexes pages that do things.  The "About" tags indicate what the item is about... For example, if it's a newsletter, an About tag would be assigned for each subject the newsletter covers. The top tag "Issue" organizes activist individuals, sites, blogs or businesses by the issue they address.
     Right now Wikidelphia has about 800 pages. With your gift and your help it will keep growing!!!
     You can contact me with page suggestions or you can request to be a Wikidelphia editor or a topic curator. Then have fun discovering Philly and posting pages for your favorite aspects of life in our great city (and the burbs, too).

Now, here’s the pitch: Through this campaign, you can Support Wikidelphia with your cash gift.
    Your gift will help my wife and I pay our friend Paul the tiny wage he asks to be our part-time site manager. In addition to scouting Philly's digital world to identify great web sites, Paul is working to groom pages for uniform style and to assign appropriate categories.
     Even if you just email me a link, a story, an accolade about someone or something related to our city, or if you create a simple page with the URL of a great website, Paul will make it look good and easy to find.

Support Wikidelphia with your cash donation. And contact me for a password to be a Wikidelphia editor or a topic curator.

I spent the day today running a table to demonstrate Wikidelphia at the annual conference of the Technology Learning Collaborative. I had the pleasure of speaking with leaders of tech centers and even a representative of Comcast. Comcast sponsored the event... While here I have been able to update several pages

Wikidelphia now has over 1,000 pages! That was my objective since we started. Now the next big target is 5,000 pages as we move on to the ultimate goal of 150,000 pages!!!!

The visual editor has been updated so now editing is as easy as using a simple word processor. Bold, underline and bulleted lists are nicely supported.

Write to Stan (at) Communitymagic.org for a username and you can start creating pages for all of your favorite Philly organizations and your friends.

Waking up our GoFundMe campaign!!! Wikidelphia has over 850 active pages. Once we have over 1,000 pages we'll want your help to tell people how wonderful it is. In the mean time, we still are asking for donations to cover the small amount my wife and I contribute each month for editorial help and our friend's wonderful work on the overall look of Wikidelphia's pages. Please consider another donation if you have already made one. And of course if you've been thinking that you want to help Wikidelphia grow, now is a good time to offer your initial support.
