Build a Livable Streets Knowledge Base. Contribute to StreetsWiki.

8:54 AM PDT on July 11, 2008

Since we launched the Livable Streets Network one month ago, our community-created reference site, StreetsWiki, has steadily grown. There are now 132 articles contributed and maintained by LSN users. Knowing Streetsblog's audience, however, there's a lot of expertise among our readers still waiting to be tapped.

Anyone with a Livable Streets account can contribute to StreetsWiki. Once you sign up, contributing is easy. You can either begin a new article, or edit an existing one. Say you want to add something -- a case study, for instance -- to the article on road diets. You would call up that page, then click "edit this article." This opens an editor, pictured below, with an interface similar to standard word-processing programs. Knowledge of HTML not required.

We'll be featuring StreetsWiki articles regularly on Streetsblog. To get the juices flowing, here are a couple of suggestions for new content, given recent events we've covered: An update of the Public Bike-Sharing entry is in order, and a new entry for Select Bus Service would be a welcome addition.

The more we build this resource, developing a knowledge base that is both wide and deep, the more it will help livable streets advocates everywhere convey their ideas and refine their arguments.
