The number of people interested in the Code Year 2012 catcode project has grown by leaps and bounds the past few days! I’m slightly overwhelmed. I’m also stupidly excited and keep doing a little happy dance in my chair at work with each new person that adds themselves as a participant. I can hardly keep up with all the Twitter messages and post comments! To see the growing list, check out my previous post. I’ve been actively updating the post to add names as I receive them.
To help facilitate participation going forward, I’ve created a space in PBWiki for all of us to use: CatCode is born! The CodeYear project may have spawned the space, but my hope is that it becomes a more general space for dialogue and learning for catalogers and coders beyond the CodeYear project. A girl can dream, right?
Please go visit the wiki and sign up as a user (it’s free!). Once your access has been granted (please be patient with me on verifying you! I’m trying to prevent spammers), please update your information on the Participants page. If you submitted your name before, I’ve pre-populated the participant’s table with some information…please find your info and update it!
We (my partners in crime and I) are still working on setting up a discussion/q&a space. We’ll post the information far and wide as soon as it’s ready.
