It’s that time of year where we need to enter the data from the Analog Census. Different from the online survey, the Analog Census are those sketchbooks and notebooks that were placed in the Center Camp Cafe, the Census Lab and a few other locations around Black Rock City.
Where the online survey give us quantitative answers to questions, the Analog Census gives us answers to open ended questions. This helps us gain insights into how people feel about the Burning Man symbol, how they play, how they feel about diversity or community. Participants expressed themselves in short answers, long journal entries, even drawings and pictures
We now need volunteers to digitize this data. We need Data Entry volunteers to transcribe participants answers to these questions so researchers can leverage this data to better understand the participants who make up Black Rock City.
People who are comfortable with spreadsheets and keyboarding skills are incredibly helpful. We also need photographers to capture each page of these books where we can preserve and share the handwritten answers and pictures contributed by the participants.
Data Entry parties are currently scheduled for December 6th and January 20th. Send email to firstname.lastname@example.org or email@example.com if you want to help us out.
