To participate in steve.museum's tagging research ...

In response to Tuesday's post citing Jennifer Trant's 2006 paper (pdf) on the steve.museum social tagging project, I received an e-mail from Jennifer encouraging participation in the tagging activity that provides the steve researchers with the bulk of the data they analyze.

As Jennifer explains in her paper, the basic issue the researchers are investigating is "the contribution of publicly assigned terms to the on-line accessibility of art collections."

If you want to join the fun, go to http://tagger.steve.museum. You can tag anonymously, but the researchers appreciate having people register because then they can collect demographic information that enriches the analysis.
