Thanks, Lisa. In addition to class time, we’re also planning to hold weekly check-in meetings. I plan to send weekly digest emails too (I’ve used these at the work—basically they break down what we’ve done this week, what we’re doing this week, and what everyone needs from everyone else—and they’ve been successful). The platforms we’ll use are on our GitHub page: https://github.com/tlewek/encoded-poetry/blob/master/project-workplan.md. Communicating deadlines and strategizing about how to support everyone else on the team will be the big challenge, though—definitely need to spend more time thinking about the details here.

This is a great starting place, Tom. Your sense that the “overall vision” is large and keeping 5 different groups on task will be challenging sounds accurate.
I’m wondering how you could drill down into that general description and enumerate more specifically how this will look on a daily/weekly/monthly basis. For example, will you communicate weekly with everyone? How will you do check ins? How often will you touch base with everyone? What platforms will you use, and how will you respond when someone doesn’t finish what they are working on? What is the best way to communicate deadlines, and what strategies will you use to help make sure that everyone receives the support they need?

This all sounds really good, Greg. One thing that I’m wondering, though, is how the humanities / poetry / poetics component does or doesn’t speak to your interests as a MALS student. What about the intellectual engagement of the project with literary studies might also advance your academic interests/needs?

It’s great that you’ve identified primary and secondary responsibilities. I think it will be helpful for you to keep this list of responsibilities in mind as we review workplans tonight. Something else you may want to consider as early as possible is where you’re going to find the training you need to learn how to work with a wireframe, which wireframe works for your project, etc. You may want to start with the list of resources that Jojo has recently posted, as there are a couple of posts on working with Bootstrap and other web frameworks.

This proposal has come a long way since your first proposal, Jenna, and in a very good way. I will withhold my comments until after class today. However, I would challenge the group to look at other kinds of projects that create similar types of resources (the Modernist Journal Project, for example) to think about potential features, use cases, and pitfalls. You might want to talk a little bit about the collections you’re working with in your proposal and in your presentation tonight–as the materials may offer some of your class colleagues a personal stake in the project. How well do you know the people around the table? Are there collections that you could start with, or that you could point people to look at an existing list of potential zines, that may make working on your project personally and academically relevant? Another thing to consider as you move ahead is what you think the “workflow” might be from 2 perspectives: 1.) adding and curating records and 2.) information retrieval and use. Perhaps in conversation with folks tonight, you could ask them for some feedback about sites/tools/resources they use regularly and what makes the workflow (think the library catalogue, amazon, google) either appealing or frustrating. Perhaps tonight you can also use people in the class to help brainstorm where there are workshops, tutorials, or other ways of learning skills that no one around the table has at this moment.
Looking forward to hearing more about the conversation and to reading other class colleagues comments here over the coming week.
