27<p>
28<strong>OpenGuides&trade;</strong> is a network of free, community-maintained
29<a href="http://wiki.org/wiki.cgi?WhatIsWiki">wiki</a> guidebooks to places
30around the world. Anyone is free to contribute, whether it's by writing new
31articles or editing the articles that we already have. Read more at the <a 
32href="information">project</a> page.

35<h2>Software that works.</h2>
36<p>
37We built our own software engine to do exactly what we wanted to do. You can
38read all about it in the <a href="software">software</a> section of this
39site. And it's free and open, so you can use and extend it yourself.
40</p>
41<p>
42Here comes the science bit: our technical policy is to provide the maximum
43possible amount of <a href="http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Metadata">metadata</a> 
44about the stuff in our guides in <a href="http://www.w3.org/RDF/"><acronym 
45title="Resource Description Framework">RDF</acronym></a>, in order to allow it
46to be easily integrated into other systems as part of the <a 
47href="http://www.w3.org/2001/sw/">Semantic Web</a>. What that means to you
48and me is that the information our users provide can be shared and re-used
49automatically between other sites and technologies.
