Until today the project description at meta-activism.org/data-set- “TheGlobal Digital Activism Data Set(GDADS) will be a coded listof digital activism cases from around the world, created as an open resource to scholars” – was accurate. It would be an open coded case list, but until today all that was public was a list of case study titles.
Today the promise of a public coded list is becoming a reality. In fulfillment of our open research commitment, the first tranche of coded cases – 446 out of the current list of 1,255 – are now available to anyone who wants them. You can view a few variables on this Google Doc (link) to get a sense of what’s been coded thus far. If you want the full coded case list email me at Mary AT meta-activism DOT org. (The reason I am not posting it for download is that I want to track use).
Above and to the left are some basic infographics and I’ll be blogging about my own findings from this initial group of cases. I’m looking forward to seeing what others find.
