HeritageCrowd

“HeritageCrowd  attempts to take these issues into account as we provide tools for the group expression of local history and heritage in certain rural communities in Eastern Canada, using low-tech ‘old digital media’ such as short-message service (SMS) and voice mail, built into a web-based system.We wanted to bring the potential of digital technology to bear on a region with relatively low internet access, but also a relatively high interest in local history.” – Graham, Massie & Feuerherm.

In May 2012, the HeritageCrowd project was maliciously hacked and is off-line, as described in Shawn Graham, “How I Lost the Crowd: A Tale of Sorrow and Hope, Electric Archaeology, May 18, 2012, http://electricarchaeologist.wordpress.com/2012/05/18/how-i-lost-the-crowd-a-tale-of-sorrow-and-hope/.
