Greetings, I first learned about WikiTowns at Wikimania 2012 in Washington,
DC. One of my thoughts then was that my curent place of residence - Falls
Church, Virginia, USA* - might be an great WikiTown project.
At this time, I am considering (finally) proposing it and checking for
local interest, but wanted to get a sense of where the WikiTowns effort(s)
is (are) in 2015.
What is the status of this initiative (or however it should be called)?
Noting only 5 wikitown categories on en.wikipedia.org, and that this list
has been inactive for 2 years.
What advice would members of this list have for someone (potentially a
group) contemplating a WikiTown project? Best practices and main problems
from existing projects?
What are the costs involved per experience of smaller towns (e.g., for
printing/posting QRpedia codes)
Thanks in advance for any feedback,
just out scoping land on CL...this is much more expensive parcel than i'm looking for, but suitable for a large group investment and a very good deal $/Ac if it doesn't flood...maybe even if it does?
I will be unable to make the next two meetups as I've a project group
meetup at OpenOakland. In general I am over my allotted bandwidth for the
next two months, but look forward to reconvening around these ideas come
spring! Apologies and y'all should feel free to meet up and discuss maker
villages to your hearts content :)
I will, however, find some time in the next week to finish setting up Kune
or a wiki on wikitown.cc, and will let y'all know when I do!

Hi David. I do believe you have the honor of first post. :) This list
has just very recently started and the project is bessentially in
incubation phase, so we're still a pretty modest size group. But soon
wikitowns.cc will be set up and as meetings continue conversations
might start bubbling up. The Totalism project is awesome and highly
relevant. Building urban maker livelabs goes hand in hand with
building rural maker livelabs.
