Another ShinJames Yeocabs project

Two Radical Reference volunteers, James Jacobs and ShinJoung Yeo, both librarians at Stanford University helped develop an Open Source Lab "to be a nexus on campus for the discussion, advocacy, and technical support of community-based technologies and information systems" at the institution, and it was written up in Red Hat Magazine.

Radical Reference at the Mid-Atlantic Radical Bookfair

Radical Reference will be conducting two workshops on Saturday October 20th in lovely Baltimore. You can see a full schedule of speakers, tables and other workshops here.
Descriptions of the workshops we are conducting are here. We'll have a table with (hopefully) some exciting crafty stuff too, so come over, it should be pretty great.

QUESTION: documenting peer to peer practices in all social domains, where to find volunteers?

question / pregunta: 

Since November 2006, I have been documenting, through the wiki at, the emergence of open/free, participatory/p2p, and commons oriented social movements in all areas of social life. We (but mostly myself) have created 5,491 pages of documentation which have been viewed 1,732,364 times. I have often thought that only librarians might be really motivated by collaborating in such a project to build a free knowledge base, and my question is: how would I find the forums where I could appeal for such assistance.
