Open Guide to Milton Keynes

Community guide to Milton Keynes that anyone can edit

The Open Guide to Milton Keynes is part of the OpenGuides network of free, community-maintained wiki guidebooks to places around the world. Anyone is free to contribute, whether it's by writing new articles or editing existing articles. The OpenGuides are developed with the Semantic Web in mind; metadata is organised to allow easy machine-readable output, in order to enable re-usage by other web services.

The guide has been set up to investigate the application of semantic web technologies in a locality based resource, to provide a service to the local Milton Keynes community, and to explore the possibilities of wiki based social software.

The Milton Keynes Open Guide is kindly hosted and provided with technical support by Chris Schmidt from the Open Guide to Boston.
