Project Summary

What is racewiki?racewiki is a web application for building structured wiki-like websites for political information.

Existing Wiki software like the popular MediaWiki store all data in a flat page. Comparing Mike Huckabee's views to those of Barack Obama requires finding the part of each of their Wikipedia page that discusses the views you are interested in. If this data was stored in a structured manner it would be trivial to present users with interesting information and allow comparisons between data. It will also be much easier to present data in a useful and standardized way and clean up any vandalism that may occur.

It will be possible to make requests of racewiki like "Show me all Republicans running for the Senate who support abortion rights" something that currently takes a fair deal of research. This will be done without losing a traditional wiki's emphasis on user accountability and citations.

OriginsThis idea was originally conceived by the Rochester Institute of Technology College Democrats as a way of keeping track of local races, but we realized that this tool would be useful to people all over so the decide to make an open source project out of it was born.
