As for the viewer, we could see the writing process in parallel by post-Twitter summary, photographs and so on. We were able to feel the skill of skilled Wikipedians about the extent of data collection and surveys up to detailed descriptions, the structure composition of articles and so on immediately appear. In the Yamanashi Prefectural Library, which was the venue, the librarian can ascertain the significance of collecting and disseminating regional materials again.

Projects do not always go according to plan. Sharing what you learned can help you and others plan similar projects in the future. Help the movement learn from your experience by answering the following questions:

  • What worked well?
    • We used Facebook group for the event planning. The Facebook group was convenient for collaboration with people living in remote areas. Also, We recorded on Twitter. In Togetter, many related Tweets could be combined into one address. As a result, Tweet can be referred to as a record.
  • What did not work so well?
    • We were planning an event jointly, but communication sometimes did not go well.
  • What would you do differently next time?
    • I would like to hold more meetings offline.
