Homeless wiki resources

Homeless wiki resources

People are using wiki technology in lots of ways to help each other out.

Starting in San Francisco, early 2007, social workers and lawyers
got together and built a wiki to host homeless resources — SFHomeless.net lists all the known service providers plus using wiki
categories, including Food, Shelter, Veterans, etc.

In June 2009 Los Angeles followed San
Francisco: LAHomeless.org. 

Last week Wikipedia founder Jimmy Wales helped launch
tampabayhomeless.wikia.com in his hometown.

Homeless resources wikis are revolutionizing the use
of social services resources, getting the whole community responsible for
content.

That's another WOW.
Thanks for the info.
Our area (the Inland Empire known in Southern California as the IE and on Craigslist as "Inl" would benefit from this idea.

Off topic sort of
When trying to see Katie's story about the 7 media greats, I could never find or access the story. I did finally realize there were seven rotating screens for the 7 media greats.
But some folks would like to read the text of the story without the uncontrolled rotations.
Also I was taken to a story of the worlds 61 most powerful people and that page too seemed difficult to follow or read.
So if you know the folks at Forbes, it may be that they are getting a bit too fancy and need to make their pages a bit more reader friendly, or not.
Something to be said for simplicity, or simplier screens.
