Sorting the Pile
The Gates Memory Project blog will remain dormant for the time being as we plan next steps for the archive. As of this writing, there are 3,564 photos collected under the "gatesmemory" tag in Flickr. Contributions have certainly slowed, but new work has continued to trickle in. If you still have images you'd like to be part of the project, it's certainly not too late!
As part of working through our ideas, we've submitted a paper to the 2005 Computers & Writing Online Conference that discusses our experience of creating a networked archive with everyday social software tools. The paper, "Sorting the Pile: Making Sense of A Networked Archive," can be viewed here.
Thanks to all who have contributed. Keep checking back for updates on the project.
