Possible Casestudies So Net 14 11 08

  1. 1. Possible case-studies For the LiveMemories project
  2. 2. Main objectives <ul><li>Within 5 months: </li></ul><ul><li>  </li></ul><ul><li>- to gain insights about which kind of participation we might expect and leverage on (both online and offline) ‏ </li></ul><ul><li>  </li></ul><ul><li>- to gain insights in order to give a direction for the development of the technical platform </li></ul>
  3. 3. Our Guidelines <ul><li>1. Simple, feasible case studies     </li></ul><ul><li>1.1. Requiring almost no resources from us (high probability of failure - adopt ongoing projects already carried out by others and give a direction to them </li></ul><ul><li>1.2. Need to have impact on territory! --> to be easy to build on (quick mashup of user-generated data) ‏ </li></ul><ul><li>  </li></ul><ul><li>2. Active users' participation </li></ul><ul><li>  </li></ul><ul><li>3. To promote collective discussion, not only data upload </li></ul><ul><li>  </li></ul><ul><li>4. To advantage already active communities (building a new community can be resource demanding and increase the probability of failure) ‏ </li></ul><ul><li>  </li></ul>
  4. 4. One of the previous case studies - and lessons learned <ul><li>La Memoria al Tempo di Internet - 22nd of October </li></ul><ul><li>  </li></ul><ul><li>We tried to involve students in: </li></ul><ul><li>  </li></ul><ul><li>discussion on &quot;what is a memory?“ </li></ul><ul><li>sharing of personal memories </li></ul><ul><li>collectively build the memory of the event </li></ul><ul><ul><ul><li>  during the day: through a couple of diaries where students could write their comments and an online blog </li></ul></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><li>  by uploading photos on flickr with the tag &quot;livememories&quot; </li></ul></ul></ul><ul><li>but... no participation!  </li></ul><ul><li>(this is good, we are needed! ;) ‏ </li></ul>
  5. 5. Possible case studies <ul><li>Already suggested: </li></ul><ul><li>- Family Reunion by Ilya </li></ul><ul><li>- Building a ‘memory’ for a particular location by Massimo Poesio </li></ul><ul><li>- Sport Showcase by Massimo Poesio: creating a collective memory about sport (a team, an event, a type of sport ) </li></ul><ul><li>We are investigating: </li></ul><ul><li>1. Opera for the future (portobeseno & cooperativa mercurio) ‏ </li></ul><ul><li>2. TrentoAsa community (archivio Ferrandi - Museo Storico) </li></ul><ul><li>3. OpenStreetMap by school students </li></ul><ul><li>4. Family Tree (Archivio Diocesano) ‏ </li></ul><ul><li>5. Trentino bloggers </li></ul><ul><li>6. MIT and Zambana Vecchia </li></ul>
  6. 6. 1. Opera for the future <ul><li>Opera Universitaria and Portobeseno already started a collective construction of the memory of the birth of the new students residence San Bartolomeo through: </li></ul><ul><li>- photos </li></ul><ul><li>- videos </li></ul><ul><li>- audio interviews </li></ul><ul><li>We could continue with the collaboration of Portobeseno and of the Cooperativa Mercurio (they have a web radio we could leverage on within the residence) ‏ </li></ul><ul><li>pro: active , young , “ connected ” users, “ social networks ”, easy mashup , tied to real-world locations and contacts </li></ul><ul><li>cons:  </li></ul><ul><li>tools: webradio platform, upload of files on Flickr , ... </li></ul><ul><li>content: photos , audio and video files, texts </li></ul><ul><li>target: university students </li></ul><ul><li>resources: low resources demanding </li></ul><ul><li>probability of success: 20% </li></ul><ul><li>  </li></ul>
  7. 7. 2. TrentoAsa community <ul><li>TrentoAsa is an active community of photographs on Flickr (trentoasa.it, www.flickr.com/groups/trento_asa 127 members ) ‏ </li></ul><ul><li>  </li></ul><ul><li>We could exploit some material from the Historical Museum of Trento (possibility to use the museum's archive of photos given by citizens) ‏ </li></ul><ul><li>  </li></ul><ul><li>We could set a photo contest about the memory of particular places (how they were and how they are) and engage/monitor the discussion within the community </li></ul><ul><li>pro: already online , motivated , tech-savvy , easy mashup cons: engagement must be very cool </li></ul><ul><li>tools: Flickr </li></ul><ul><li>content: photos , maybe some texts </li></ul><ul><li>target: Flickr users </li></ul><ul><li>resources: low resources demanding </li></ul><ul><li>probability of success: 12% </li></ul>
  8. 8. 3. OpenStreetMap <ul><li>School Students go OpenStreetMapping (representing/collecting memories of the places) Cristina Moretto works in FBK on this!  </li></ul><ul><li>  </li></ul><ul><li>We could involve the participation of student's parents or grandparents, ie. Recording and creating connections between different memories (how different people felt or feel particular places, roads, parks, ecc.). Pro: could meet teachers ' interests; possibility to involve students, parents and grandparents, both online and offline Cons: we're tied to a particular instrument? (openstreetmap); how can it be mashupped ? </li></ul><ul><li>tools: openstreetmap , tools for text comments and photo upload </li></ul><ul><li>content: trails on maps, geolocated photos and text memories </li></ul><ul><li>Target: children/boys&girls; their parents/grandparents </li></ul><ul><li>resources: low resources demanding </li></ul><ul><li>probability of success: 8+/-10% </li></ul>
  9. 9. 4. Family Tree <ul><li>The Archivio Diocesano has a big database containing names of people who left the Trentino region in the XIX century. </li></ul><ul><li>  </li></ul><ul><li>On the 22nd of October they said they wanted to put online this archive anyway, to help people who asked to find their forefathers. </li></ul><ul><li>  </li></ul><ul><li>How to exploit this archive to engage a discussion on it? How could we involve citizens somehow? </li></ul><ul><li>  </li></ul><ul><li>pro: data should be online anyway (to be verified) cons: privacy issues, will data be online? </li></ul><ul><li>tools: </li></ul><ul><li>content: name and what? </li></ul><ul><li>target: every citizen (especially people with expats) ‏ </li></ul><ul><li>probability of success: ??% </li></ul>
  10. 10. 5. Trentino blogger <ul><li>245 blogs at http://www.blogitalia.it/elenco_dei_blog.asp?pv=92 but many more </li></ul><ul><li>some aggregated at http://www.trentowiki.it/blogs/ </li></ul><ul><li>they're already contributing live memories (their blogs!!!) </li></ul><ul><li>  </li></ul><ul><li>Pro: already contributing &quot;memories&quot;, tech-savvy , easy to mashup (RSS), want to be engaged in online discussions Cons: it might require a lot of time to follow and inspire and monitor ongoing conversations, what is the &quot;right&quot; engagement bit? </li></ul><ul><li>tools: just their blogs </li></ul><ul><li>content: mainly text ! </li></ul><ul><li>target: trentino bloggers </li></ul><ul><li>probability of success: 34% </li></ul><ul><li>  </li></ul>
  11. 11. 6. MIT and Zambana Vecchia <ul><li>http://mobile.mit.edu/en/zambana </li></ul><ul><li>MIT and FBK joint project </li></ul><ul><li>  </li></ul><ul><li>To investigate how to transform the village of Zambana into a Sustainable Green Village (creatively redesign the village of Zambana, from an urban planning perspective, as well as from architectural and new media design perspectives).  </li></ul><ul><li>  </li></ul><ul><li>Collect the memory of what Zambana was ( landslide ) and what is becoming ...  </li></ul><ul><li>Pro: MIT does it anyway, physical world </li></ul><ul><li>Cons: not straightforward </li></ul><ul><li>tools: voice interviews and photos ? </li></ul><ul><li>content: text , photos , voice , video ? </li></ul><ul><li>target: inhabitants of Zambana (past, present, future) ‏ </li></ul><ul><li>probability of success: ~4%  </li></ul>
