My spiders may have been slacking earlier today, but one of them just brought back something very interesting from the Wikimedia Boston list:
Prof. Gregory Crane (Head of Classics Department) from Tufts University is
looking for a ‘Classics’ experienced Wikimedian to assist on a new project.
The premise of the collaboration is to Wikisource and translatevClassic
texts, which will be annotated and interpreted collaboratively to form a
‘Wikiedition’. If you are, or know anybody in the intersection of the
Wikimedia and Classics please contact me.
- via: [Wikimedia-boston] Classicist wanted to collaborate with Tufts department on first ‘Wikieditions’ project. (the contact info is there)
Hopefully we’ll be hearing more about this project … it’s got huge potential (and I’ve suggested similar things in the past, back before there were wikis) …
