Here’s an item in Welsh for the TV programme Heno about Cof y Cwmwd, a new multi-author website about the Uwchgwyrfai area.
The purpose of the site is to collect and share historical information about the area, its institutions and people.
As web developer I have been working with Canolfan Hanes Uwchgwyrfai on this site, which is powered by MediaWiki server software.
People are now contributing pics and articles to the site.
Activity has increased today during the first Golygathon (Editathon) on the wiki, a community event to stimulate contributions. The Golygathon is headed by Jason Evans of the National Library of Wales, who is the Wicipediwr Preswyl (Wikipedian in Residence) and knows a great deal about growing wikis!
It’ll be very interesting to see how projects like Wikipedia and the new website Cof y Cwmwd share content between them in the future.
