Collecting Digital Folklore

Consulted with the American Folklife Center in the development of born digital collection development strategies.

Memegenerator is a platform for creating and providing access to image macros, or internet memes. It is archived in the Digital Culture Web Archive.

The work resulted in the launch of a Digital Culture Web Archive and #FolklifeHalloween2014 which used Filckr as a platform for communities to document contemporary folklife practices and openly license their photos for the Library of Congress to acquire. In support of this work I planned an unconference focused on collecting and preserving digital culture and ran an interview series on the topic for The Signal.
