Some innovative ideas for using an archive in non-traditional ways:

  1. Based on previous idea to crowdsource material for the archive: quality control for crowdsourcing.  Design a new metric to assess implicit factors of CUNY community and other contributors such as level of expertise (CUNY/non-CUNY), consensus with other contributors, community rating (are you from Baruch writing about CSI?) and other qualities (similar to assessing trust or authority in a network).

  2. Use image of archive as a Knowledge Base (KB) with an front end to allow users to pull customized information for a specific purpose into a new site, teaching materials or other project.  Think Jocelyn mentioned something in this spirit way back when.

  3. Integrate components for automatically archiving and visualizing emergent media from RSS and social media sites by hashtag or other criteria.  Increasingly, stories are told and information is distributed by through tweets, citizen journalism, shared links.  Social media aggregation tools for organizations exist and something could be adapted for our purpose.  A nice experiment:

  4. It might be nice to have some area of the archive dedicated for contributing datasets.  If a standard is used, and there’s some money to hire a developer, the data sets can be linked to something like D3 library so that users can generate their own (simple – word clouds, bar and pie charts) visualizations.

  5. How about an istance of Crowdmap to support and collect infortation related to CUNY activism moving forward? Looks neat!
