Experiment: read EPA docs and describe (tag) them

Play Tag With Government Documents

“Free Government Information is doing an experiment for tagging government documents, and they need you to help.

The group has taken 32 documents from the EPA Web site and posted them to the Internet Archive, at http://www.archive.org/search.php?query=epapilotproject . They want you to read the documents, and then describe them and tag them in del.icio.us. You can see what’s been tagged so far at http://del.icio.us/tag/epapilotproject?setcount=100 . The project will run for three months and then the data generated by users will be analyzed, with the group determining how many participated, average number of tags per document, how the documents were described, etc.”
