This wiki space contains archival documentation of Project Bamboo, April 2008 - March 2013.
The Story Repository serves to collect those narratives that describe or exemplify practices, work, tools and collaboration our community believes should impact and should be impacted by the work of Project Bamboo. Each story should describe the work or creation of one or many scholars engaged in the academic or creative endeavor they consider to be part of their responsibility as an academic. The story may feature processes, tools of collaborations in existence or as yet only imagined. It is through the understanding of the processes and behaviors in these stories that our team can analyze what technology will have the most beneficial impact and meaning upon the communities we serve. Through the linkage between these stories and specific proposed technologies we hope we may foster common understanding between those of us in different fields.
The Story Template is designed to collect a useful amount of metadata about each story, while leaving room for the story to be expressed as the author(s) feel best. We recognize that the collector of a story may not be external to the story and so ask for information both about the collector and those scholars who play a part in the story itself. In the interest of providing artifacts useful to later analysis we ask that the metadata be filled in as completely as possible. As story collection continues it is our goal to improve the repository to adapt to the needs of Project Bamboo. Metadata, particularly contact information, is vital to revision and improvement of this resource. To aid in this collection process Narrative Template Instructions have been created.
