The Organic City is a multimedia thesis project dealing with place-based storytelling. We’ve combined WordPress and Mikel Maron’s worldKit to create a website where people can read and write stories about places in downtown Oakland, California. Since our two-person team has limited programming knowledge, we wouldn’t have been able to get this far without the help of WordPress’s support forum—so many thanks to everyone out there! Although the programming isn’t too tidy under the hood, we are very happy with the results on the surface. Our next step is to develop a downloadable story tour of the area. If you are interested in taking a look, please visit our site: http://www.TheOrganicCity.com. Feedback and stories are appreciated.
