wiki.cleveland.com — no, the link does not work; but it should.
Look at New York City's Wiki. Want to read about great Japanese Restaurants in New York. Or, maybe you are looking for information on some of the High Schools in the area; or you want to read about Union Square Park or the Brooklyn-Queens Expressway. It's all there. It's all editable. It's a community of collaboration creating the information for their digital city.
And, NYC's wiki isn't nearly as impressive as Seattle's Wiki.
So, what is stopping Cleveland from entering the fray? Probably initiative. Probably hosting. Probably bandwidth. Probably know-how. But, probably, mostly initiative.
I would be more than happy to set it up. I've been trying to do some rabble-rousing saying, "Case should host this." "I can contact the people over at the Plain Dealer who host cleveland.com. I can talk to the guy to point the DNS record for wiki.cleveland.com over to a server hosted by Case Western. We'll throw a wiki up there and splash a big "Powered by Case" logo on at the top. It's good for Cleveland. It's good for us." Unfortunately, the idea has yet to gain any good traction. It may take some guerilla tactics to see if this idea has any legs.
At the very least, it would generate a nice big news post that gets caught up in the cycle:
In a joint effort spearheaded by Case Western Reserve University between the City of Cleveland, the Plain Dealer, and OneCleveland; a new tool is now provided to the Cleveland community to help promote, collaborate, a disseminate information about our emerging digital city. Etc. Etc. Etc.
Maybe this blog entry can stir up some interest. Then, at the very least, The Cleveland Wifi Wiki could find a better home than someone's desktop attached to the Internet via DSL.
