Why go on-line?

Why should we as researchers go on-line with this project?


Going on-line:

force us to analyze and tell stories from the start

– force us to visualize research (moving pictures, still pictures, sounds and words)

– trigger our analytical imagination

– could attract other analysts and storytellers that help us advance the project

– could attract possible participants that we normally don’t find

– could make the research process more transparent

–¬†might be an effectful way of communicating research

– might enhance the dialogue between reserach and society


Some challenges going on-line are:

how to tell good stories (escaping academic jargon)

– how to plot and visualize the organizing of rocks with moving pictures, still pictures, sounds and words

how to tell a good story about the research process

– making technology work
