The Civic Media Project from MIT Press is finally live. This is a great collection of over 100 case studies from all over the world, covering everything from open data to emerging technologies, community activism with social media and more. It is bound to be a great learning tool for students and a solid source of contextual information for scholars.
The long list of wonderful contributions includes two of my case studies, “Mapping the 2012 Election: Use of Crowdmapping in Ukraine” (Systems & Design section) and “Galas: Mobilizing & Managing Volunteer Humanitarian Efforts Online During Euromaidan Protests In Ukraine” (Community & Action section). I am very excited to be a part of such a wonderful community of civic media scholars and to join the conversation on the website. Go and read the case studies and the insightful comments and reviews available at civicmediaproject.org.
