VMs: Quattrocento Minor Characters...
On "Project Sourceberg" (part of Wikipedia), I've started up a Wikipedia
Project for Quattrocento Minor Characters.
The first main idea is to allow everybody to build up (over time) pages
relating to individual characters, so that all information relating to
(say) Cicco Simonetta can be put in a single place.
The second main idea is to promote the page (and the general concept) among
historians, so that a more inclusive picture of history can be built up
collaboratively. Also, once information on a particular character reaches
critical mass, another idea would be to encourage new dissertations.
This is perhaps a new type of collaborative historical research, more akin
to what we've been doing here on-list: hopefully it will grow and take on a
life of its own. :-)
Cheers, .....Nick Pelling.....
