Please join us November 4th, 1pm EST for a project share with the developers of the Platform for Experimental, Collaborative Ethnography (PECE). PECE is designed to enable collaboration amongst disciplinarily and geographically dispersed researchers, drawing together diverse expertise. Initial projects built on PECE include the Asthma Files and the Disaster STS Research Network. A brief account from some of the PECE developers can be found here. Gotomeeting details are below.
