Preservation triangle

We had our friend/realtor over for dinner last night and we had a long discussion about his new project, preservation triangle. It's a really cool concept. I think that the living history section is particulary fascinating. What a fantastic way to document and discover building's histories. I hate to use the wrong terminology but I guess it's a bit like a wiki or open source?

He described it to me as an online version of urban hiker (which he also produced). Ourpreservation.com is actually the mother site and they're doing it for cities all over the globe.

Taken from their website...
