We’re into the last 48 hours of this campaign and just over 10% funded… I’m just writing two articles for tomorrow: “What happens if we exceed the target” and “What happens if we don’t hit the target” since one or the other is going to happen, but I don’t want to call it yet! :)
A bit more bloggage on finding the value in archives.
I made this with the one piece of digitised cine film that I’ve got so far to help illustrate the sort of thing I’m after, please pass it on!
Silver Jubilee Day 1977
Just posted this on the Facebook page:
“Although still officially in the fundraising phase, I think it would be fun to start collecting some material. Just to start to get an idea of the scale of stuff that’s actually out there and to demonstrate some of the principles at work.
So I propose we look first for images of the Silver Jubilee day in 1977 since it’s probably a day that people took their cameras out. We have one bit of cine film of the parade, are there others? Were you in the parade? Do you have any photographs of the parade, or of street parties, or of any other activities you or your family took part in on the day?
Message me here, or directly by e-mail email@example.com to let me know if you have stuff, even if you aren’t able or haven’t been able to scan it in yet.
And spread the word!"
Got started on some proper thinking and blogging about this today: http://perfectpath.co.uk/2012/12/28/bds-why-not...
Sorry it’s a bit on the dry side, but it covers important principles – things will lighten up again soon, I promise!
Thanks for all the links and good vibes so far, please do share this campaign with anyone who might like to contribute to the pot (yeah, I know, not much cash around straignt after Christmas) – every little helps keep this thing going.
Thanks anyway, you all rock!
