Can we dream…? …because there are so many items in the archive which we need identified and information about them collected. The idea has come about that we need someone to interview some of the people who used to work for SIL in places like Colombia. But the person who would be interviewing the retirees would need to take the items with them to the interview. How can someone drag 2000+ photos to an interview? Well, take them on an iPad! Then when someone sees a photo that they know something about the interviewer can write it down right in the photo’s description.  If you want to read more about my ideas for using the iPad in this manner and on social meta-data collection. Read my blog post at: http://hugh.thejourneyler.org/social-meta-data-collection.
The iPad Team is only half of the solution, we still need a website where people can comment on photos and we can then download those comments to our archive system.
