Using Qri for Distributed Data collaboration #21
Using Qri for Distributed Data collaboration
qri.io ("query") is an open source peer-2-peer data collaboration tool. In the spirit of "do it with others" this workshop will engage participants to each develop their own dataset of citations they'd like to share such as books, online articles, and blog posts. Participants will then publish these datasets on the distributed web using qri, and from there we'll work together to combine the sum of these datasets into a collection of citations. We'll then render these datasets as web pages using traditional web technologies, making our collection of citations available to a broader audience, while also providing access to the raw data for others to build upon.
