MonmouthpediA[edit | edit source]
William Gibson once said: “The future is already here — it's just not very evenly distributed”. In this case we are starting a project that is experimenting with what is possible. One of our most exciting projects is taking shape in Monmouth. The target is to make a “wiki-town”, covering the town with QRpedia codes linking to relevant multilingual articles. After starting off as a volunteer Wikipedian in Residence, John Cummings is now working full time as the Project Leader to make this happen, thanks to funding by Monmouthshire County Council and Wikimedia UK.
The new video (right) describes our objectives and shows some of the people involved. Volunteers have already written about 80 articles in English as well as contributions in Hindi, Danish, Czech, Welsh and several other languages.
