BBC Backstage: five year retrospective
Backstage, is approaching five years old believe it or not. So to celebrate I have asked Social technologist Suw Charman-Anderson of the popular Strange Attractor blog to put together a retrospective. Don't worry there will be data and mashups but we also want you all to share with us your stories and memories of the last five years
So the first project is image-based: We are looking for your favourite photos and images of Backstage and the stories behind them. The images might be a photo from a Backstage event that you really enjoyed, or a screenshot of a prototype you developed or a visualisation of BBC data that you put together. We don't mind what type of image it is, just so long as it's online and you can tell us a bit about it.
The second project is map-based: We'd like you to tell us what your
favourite experiences of Backstage were. Perhaps a prototype you put
together, an event you went to, or something else completely. We'd also
like to know where you are based (at whatever level of detail you feel
comfortable) so that we can see how far Backstage reached. When Backstage first launched it was mainly for the UK only but the internationalisation of Backstage was overwelming, so it would be great to see how far we're really talking.
Both mash-ups are based on Google Docs so the two forms are embedded in the page after the last link, or you can go straight to the pages directly by following... Mapping Your BBC Backstage Memories or Images of BBC Backstage. In both cases, if you add info to the spreadsheets we take that to mean that you're happy for us to reuse your contribution.
