Q: How many digital humanists does it take to change a lightbulb? A: Yay! Crowdsourcing! (Melissa Terras via Bethany Nowviskie)
Several THATCampers have added comments to my session proposal mentioning their interest in a session on crowdsourcing. I’d like to promote that conversation to its own session idea.
What kinds of things could a crowdsourcing session cover? Some options include a wide-ranging, unstructured discussion, a brain-storming session on how to integrate crowdsourcing into specific proposals, or perhaps a review and brief demo of successful crowdsourcing projects. We might end up with a mix, as I’ve attended some very successful sessions that had heterogeneous formats.
What are your ideas?
