Not a Rad Ref event, but Arpita Bose and I will soon be conducting a free Internet research workshop at the Park Slope Food Coop:
A Hard Nut to Crack: Researching Your Neighborhood
Demographics and other statistical information are among the most difficult data to harness when you're trying to learn more about where you live. And what about researching the history of your part of the city? This workshop will introduce participants to resources and techniques to help you get a handle on your neighborhood. By the end, you will be able to conduct basic demographic research and know how to find information about Brooklyn and local issues using websites and resources both online and off.
Links to some of the sites we'll be looking at are in a Delicious stack.
UPDATE 7/30: An outline and some notes have been posted to the site.
