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.
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.
