HistoryRemix: Dave Z…be tempted. Be very, very tempted.
I’m not entirely convinced that the analogy “Think of it like Facebook for the First World War” is accurate, but the new research model being proposed at Muninn WWI does offer a glimpse at the research potential when the web is used as more than an information repository. Connecting up researchers and databases across the web in an effort to custom mine data places the historian in the same seat (passenger) as the marketers beneath the social networking sites, in not in the driver’s seat. Dave Z has gotta see….we may entice him yet.
