Hey friends!

Whew! A lot has happened since our last PBS Idea Lab blog update! Our first focus community, DentonWiki, has been doing great, and several of our other focus communities are close to launching.

Around 50 people attended an editing sprint to help TriangleWiki get ready to launch.

Just recently, nearly 50 people came together in Raleigh, N.C., to join a massive in-person content-building sprint to build up the soon-to-be-launched TriangleWiki.org. Folks from all walks of life joined in — two city council members and Raleigh’s chief planning director even came by to help out. Read more about the event on our blog.

And our new software has been rapidly adopted by communities around the world. Since our last email, over 180 independent communities have installed our LocalWiki software, making us one of the most-installed Knight News Challenge projects ever!

Check it out and share widely!
