update on data stories initiative

05 Jun 2015
Groups audience: 

Hi,
here is a quick update on our data stories effort
http://datastories.jiscinvolve.org/
I presented a poster about the data stories blog at the IASSIST conference
on Wednesday, June 5. You can find the poster here
http://www.slideshare.net/InnaKouper/telling-tales-the-power-of-data-sto...
There was a good interest in the blog, I had several conversations that
boil down to the following:
- great and useful effort, we need examples, so please continue updating
the blog
- yes, we have stories, especially negative ones, but we won't share
because people will get upset
This may mean that for now the focus needs to be on the examples from the
news. Someone also mentioned looking for "use cases" that many projects
collect and transforming them into stories.
We're always looking for volunteers to help us write blog posts, if you're
willing to do that, let us know.
There is also a call for breakout sessions for RDA Plenary 6. I won't be
able to organize a session on my own, but if anyone would like to have a
session where we write new stories, I'm happy to organize something small.

    Dear All,
    I would be very interested in such negative stories.
    Not to put them out there, but to learn.
    Cheers,
    Herman
