  • 7. Case Study - MonmouthpediA – a techno-social innovation projectembracing a digital community curation methodology MonmouthpediA is a World first Techno-Social Innovation project which attempted to use Wikipedia (the People’s Encyclopedia) to cover every notable place, person, artefact, plant, animal and other things in Monmouth in as many languages as possible. Devised by John Cummings and supported by Wiki Media UK, Monmouthshire County Council, CMC2 and local and global content creating contributors. Philosophical underpinning - Knowledge gives us context and it allows us to appreciate our surroundings more. The Council for British Archaeology designated Monmouth as the seventh best town for archaeology in Britain. Monmouthpedia uses QRpedia codes, a type of bar code a smartphone can read through its camera (using one of the many free QR readers available) that takes you to a Wikipedia article in your language.
