The Akron founder's page is dedicated to those people in the Akron area that initially made the Akron WikiXM news a reality. Without their initiative, foresight and social fortitude the Akron WikiXM news would not have happened. Like all those that have come before us, these founder saw what others couldn't - potential in a new way of doing an old medium - a new way of providing the news to the people around them. We want to thank these people by featuring them on the Akron founders page for life. There are many venues to get the news but WikiXM was initiated by your founders, for the people of Akron, to create the news they saw fit.
WikiXM is the people's news source, for the people, by the people.
