Community communications with tools like wikis, social media and networks, and digital media augment our back fence, water cooler and school yard relationships. One effect that caught us all by surprise is how such added value levels the playing field on scales local and global, creating a new equanimity.

The wiki is a strong positive force, as new media proves that community voice is the province of a conscious, alert and informed citizenry. It is heard when individuals and groups collectively speak their understanding of their community and its relationships to the world. While political and social power may seem the province of the wealthy, famous or politically connected, such is only at the leisure of communities in aggregate.  
Political and social power is not simply the birthright of the wealthy, famous or politically connected. It is potentially the province of a conscious, alert and informed citizenry able to collectively harness an understanding of where they and their communities fit within the larger world. Collaborative information-sharing and knowledge-building technologies like wikis and other social media are tools regular people can use to wield significant power. Civic wikis, like PortlandWiki, offer a unique focal point where ordinary people can organize planned, deliberate campaigns to take control of their communities for the benefit of the people who live there.<ref>Loosely paraphrasing King's [http://books.google.com/books?id=ky323HwHxXMC&printsec=frontcover&dq=Where+Do+We+Go+From+Here:+Chaos+Or+Community?&source=bl&ots=lukkmIu8bg&sig=1sxFMvNAs3tson4ZrO6-3VPAoQI&hl=en&ei=ltldTaf9AovksQPtt6XPCA&sa=X&oi=book_result&ct=result&resnum=11&ved=0CGYQ6AEwCg#v=onepage&q&f=false ''Where Do We Go From Here: Chaos Or Community?''] | Bottom of page 165.</ref>

Thus, a video recorded to FaceBook sparks a peaceful protest of six Arabic countries and a student's science question is answered by an astronaut in space. But beyond the super short length and life span of a tweet, or the artificial limits and controls on the social groups of FaceBook, wikis are a place where *eveyone's* voice is heard, commented on and retained for posterity, using links, articles, collaborative writing and editing, video, audio, and even interactive media. Wikis are the digital media method to document and share knowledge on all things large and small, from deceptive  government and corporate practices to a compendium of globally contributed knowledge and right down to local little league softball rankings. Limits are set only by the the users intention of the wiki's purpose.

Frequently conversations at our [[PortlandWiki:Monday Meets|Monday Meets]] or [[WikiWednesday]] meetups will gravitate towards weightier subjects. Not in the "a moment on the lips, an eternity on the hips"<ref>[http://www.polyvore.com/moment_on_lips_an_eternity/set?id=16500672 Polyvore: A moment on the lips, an eternity on the hips.]</ref> sense, but more like a "wow, like that's totally ''deep''"<ref>[http://pitchblackgold.wordpress.com/2010/07/02/some-wow-thats-deep-questions/ Some “Wow! That’s Deep” Questions]</ref><ref>[http://ilike.myspacecdn.com/play#Parliament:Deep:650093:m732797 "Deep" | Parliament | ''Motor-Booty Affair'']</ref> sense. One theme we hope weaves its way throughout our Barnraising event is the "what's our motivation?" question. What's ''your'' motivation? Why PortlandWiki? What are some of the possibilities that can emerge? What are your thoughts and ideas? How can PortlandWiki contribute to the entire Portland community?
+
So, what's ''your'' motivation? Why PortlandWiki? What are some of the possibilities that can emerge? What are your thoughts and ideas? How can PortlandWiki contribute to the entire Portland community? What can PortlandWiki do for you and the "barn" your real or virtual community in Portland needs?
