In 2004 we started the Davis
Wiki, an experimental project to collect and share interesting
information about the town of Davis, California, editable by anyone,
that soon became the world's largest and most vibrant community wiki.
Today the residents of Davis use it for everything from learning
news and local history to
helping return lost pets to
their owners — and it's become the largest, most used media source
in the city. In a week, nearly half of residents use the Davis Wiki; in a
month, nearly everyone uses it. And 1 in 7
residents contribute material to the Davis Wiki.
We want to help as many communities as possible
realize the full potential of such an amazing, collaborative information
