Title

Wikis for cities or how to save a city collective memory: The MedinaPedia project


Presenter

Youssef Ben Haj Yahia

Wikis for cities is a project to setup city wikis in order to save a city's collective memory by creating articles about things, people and places which are not yet appropriate for Wikipedia due to lack of sources but has to be documented. This project can be very interesting for African cities where there is a lot of to add to Wikipedia but due to a lack of documentation (books written, articles ...) it's not possible to add that for the moment.
