San Francisco Homeless Resource

There's a San Francisoc Local Wiki that might be considered as a partner organization.

It seems like this San Francisco Homless Resource might benefit from being co-hosted or ported or linked to and and back from the San Francisco Local Wiki.  Consider you could probably consolidate by moving every page in this wikia over to the san francisco local wiki and adding the tag "homeless resource" to each page in the san francisco local Wiki. I'm not sure that's a good marketing or branding move the users would benefit from, but it's somethign to consider since convergence is generally good.

Darcel is looking into taking ownership of this and he's got a track record for successfull project to bring wifi to homeless shelters.  There's a User testing project related to this wikia too, but I don't know much about it yet.  I think maybe someone might see this message here and contact me on at the SFBrigade?   

Anyway, I just had some random thoughts about the wikia and I'm playing with it and editing what should be a harmless page to add a talk comment.  I was talking with a recently homeless neighbor who I was letting crash for the night at my place about this site and he said he didn't know about it or use it.  I suspect the biggest User Experiene enhancement we could make might be to get more people using this wikia.  It's already well used I suspect according to the from page, but could it be used a lot more? Maybe with linkbacks from yelp and google maps and things like that this wikia couild be more discoverable to people who need it?
