 +====== The Open Guide to Glasgow ======
 +  * URL: https://​glasgow.openguide.co.uk
  
 +I've had this domain for a long time.  Originally it was a mediawiki wiki with entries for all the pubs in Glasgow (that data later became the basis of [[Mcpubs]]) and it was expanded to include information on individual streets and the businesses they hosted etc.
 +
 +Now the site is a dokuwiki wiki and focuses on providing lists of '​Things to do', 'Clubs & Interests'​ and so on.
 +
 +It was seeded by searching the whois records for every domain that had the word '​glasgow'​ in it and scraping the data for keywords. ​ Since then it's been manually updated by me.
 +
 +I've focused on compiling lists of event pages with the ultimate goal of creating a comprehensive "​What'​s On" site at some point in the future.
 +
 +There is also: https://​scotland.openguide.co.uk and https://​edinburgh.openguide.co.uk but I haven'​t seeded those with many entries so far.
 +
 +===== Future plans =====
 +  * Investigate how feasible it is to integrate dokuwiki with mastodon so you can login/edit and comment/​subscribe using your Fediverse address
 +  * Have the data (URL directory/​lists) available in multiple formats
 +    * e.g. A live bookmark feed to be used as bookmark directory in Firefox/​Chrome
 +    * A gopher server powered by this data - just because I can
 +    * Allow [[Adelaide]] to search this data via IRC
