Also, since not enough people were irreparably damaged by yesterday's pun, I picked one out of the limerick dictionary for you.
recommended I talk to you about OpenGuides, because I was lamenting the total lack of guides to Albuquerque (a fantastic city where everyone should visit) and contemplating the usefulness of putting one up on the Internet. I was wondering if you had time to share some insights into the project—how easy is it to use (both as a writer and user), how time-consuming, etc.
You can email me at username at livejournal dot com, if you'd rather.

Hello! If you're comfortable with IRC, then I'd advise joining the #openguides
IRC channel on the irc.perl.org server, and chatting to the people there. It's sometimes quiet, so be prepared to hang around for a while and/or try a couple of times to catch people when they're actually paying attention. You could also look at the mailing list
If you don't want to get into the techy parts, then someone will be able to host a guide for you; that's not a problem. You will need a core team of maybe 3-5 people dedicated to adding stuff to the guide, though, or it's likely that it just won't take off.
The most time-consuming thing for the admin is probably managing wikispam. Once you're familiar with the software then a simple edit takes seconds.
