Wikis Take Manhattan: Scavenger Hunt Documents Urban Environment

In these days of lurid internet videos, it's kind of encouraging to see that you don't have to dance in lingerie to get hits. Only yesterday I posted on how the StreetFilms crew seem to be able to make interesting videos about almost anything, including contraflow bike-lanes. Now they've done it again with a short movie about Wikis Take Manhattan - a collaborative scavenger hunt aimed at documenting street features like bike lanes, recycling and community gardens for Wikipedia and StreetsWiki. It makes for surprisingly entertaining viewing. Click below the fold for more fascinating movies from StreetFilms.
