Crowdsourcing | IIPC
"Crowdsourcing Workshop & Use Cases The web is a social platform, built by people and organizations for people and organizations. Web archives are, to all extent and purposes, no different. Yet the disparity between the number of people involved in developing the web, and the number of people involved in archiving the web, is enormous. This proposal seeks to investigate how crowdsourcing web archiving activities may begin to redress that balance and increase the amount of manpower available to throughout all stages of the web archiving workflow in member institutions.  A workshop about the frameworks of crowdsourcing projects and web archiving use cases was held at the 2012 GA in Washington"

The Master Character Narratives in Campaign 2012 | Project for Excellence in Journalism (PEJ)
"These numbers make this as negative a campaign as PEJ has seen since it began monitoring the master narratives about candidates in press coverage in presidential campaigns in 2000. Only one campaign has been comparable-2004 when coverage was filled with the controversy over the war in Iraq, the prison scandal at Abu Ghraib and the Swift Boat documentaries. "
