OpenGuides Editing

I've been working on the Freedom Trail entry on the Open Guide this morning... I was looking at the webstats last night, and realizing that all of the high-level Google hits were to pages that someone other than me had edited. That's a really cool feeling: I get a couple thousand visitors a day now, and most of the pages they're going to were community edited, which is completely in the spirit of OpenGuides, instead of the crappy way it was before, where I was the sole 'real' editor :)

I've put in some work in the technology in the past couple days to make things work more like they should: adding summary info to the page, and to the category listings, is taking advantage of information that's already available but that people didn't otherwise really see.

I also found out that the guide is the first hit for "Boston Strip Clubs" and "Boston Sex Shops", so I put some editing effort into doing something about having decent content there :)
