Since this is “Visit other OpenGuides Week” Kake has been helping out with the TwinCities Guide. After she and Bob sorted out a performance issue for me (which involved not having a proper index), things have been moving nicely. I’d forgotten how much fun it was to work on and with the Guide.
The OpenGuides for those of you who aren’t aware are a series of Perl based Wikis that use Wiki::Toolkit. Unlike most wikis W::T allows for structured Metadata which means you can easily search for “All Restaurants within 500 meters of [here] that are Open at 6pm”. They’ve been slowly growing for a few years starting with London (for locals try the younger Randomness Guide).
All of this is a prelude to saying that the Twin Cities guide is looking for people to come on board as an Admin. If someone in the Cities wants to pitch in and help, please contact me!
