Local Community Website - can you help?

I want to make a website to which anyone can go to find out what's going on in their area, and to which anyone can post an event, no matter how seemingly insignificant. I want it to be *the* place people go to find local events (gotta think big, no?), and I want it to be free and open. And I'd like to do it in Rails.

I'm a pretty awful coder, but I managed to put something functional together using Rails and the YM4R plugin. What I'd like now is some people who really know what they're doing with Rails to come on board (in a spare time volunteering way) and help make something beautiful.

In the meantime, I'll be off trying to find some people who know about the other aspects of doing collaborative, web-based projects (trac and svn, anyone?).

If you're interested in using the web to help strengthen local community, please email ew@physical-web.org, or check out www.physical-web.org. There's loads to do, and any help you can give will be appreciated.



meandmycity.com was developed with similar concepts but we focus on listing local businesses as well as local events. It is powered by Rails, AJAX and MySQL.

Check it out or send me a note if you'd like more information.
