History Commons 2.0 — Your Thoughts and Opinions

We’re discussing how to make the History Commons more efficient and usable, both for users and contributors/editors. This is part of the much-discussed “History Commons 2.0” initiative.

What do you like about the way the HC web application works? What do you not like? How could it work better to suit your needs? What could we add? Fix? Drop entirely? We’re talking about navigation, searches, finding information, timeline/project organization, everything.

Your opinions will shape how HC 2.0 progresses, so please, be frank and be detailed. We want to know.

Thanks for your participation!

  1. WTC 7

    Please forgive me for “hijacking” this format to try to get answers about WTC 7 and knowledge that the History Commons community may have. I don’t seem to be able to find a format in which to start a dialogue.
    As a person who has been researching 9-11 daily for 4 1/2 years now, it occurs to me that we don’t know very much in some areas of information about WTC 7 on September 11.
    A. WE KNOW WHO MOST OF THE TENANTS FROM FLOORS 1-23 WERE. HAVE PEOPLE FROM
    SMITH BARNEY OR THE VARIOUS GOVERNMENT AGENCIES BEEN INTERVIEWED? DID THEY ARRIVE AT WORK THAT MORNING? WHEN DID THEY LEAVE? WHO ALERTED THEM TO LEAVE?
    WHAT DID THEY SEE?
    B. WHO–OR WHAT–WAS ON FLOORS 24-47 OF WTC 7? DOES ANYONE REALLY KNOW?
    C. HAS ANYONE CLEARED UP THE ISSUE OF THE 2 STINGER MISSILES ALLEGEDLY KEPT IN THE BUILDING BY THE SECRET SERVICE?
    D. THE GERMAN FIRM CONVAR HAS BEEN WORKING TO RECOVER AND READ SOME OF THE HARD DRIVES FROM TOWERS 1 AND 2; HAS ANY COMPUTER RECOVERY BEEN UNDERTAKEN FOR DRIVES WHICH MAY HAVE BEEN FOUND IN WTC 7?

    Plase forgive me for using this undesignated format to ask questions which I think are important, though they are submitted in an unorthdox manner.
