History

WikiCity Guides started in 2009, and is led by Patrick Lazure and Rohit Keshwani. Each of the 22,154 towns follows a similar format, offering local news, a community calendar, and local history. This project is also the first wiki to use Twitter as a tool to index content. WikiCity Guides was acquired by the Omaha World-Herald on October 27, 2009. [3]
