Will You Help Me Build the Newbery/Caldecott Hadron Collider?
Happy New Year!
I’ve had this thing I’ve wanted to do for a couple of years now, but it keeps getting put on the back burner. Why not share it in the first post of 2017?
I don’t really know how the Large Hadron Collider works (although I did just read this, which helped), but here’s what I do know: once it was built, scientists interested in particle physics couldn’t wait to fire the thing up and see what new things they could learn.
The world needs the Newbery and Caldecott equivalent.
Two, actually. The ultimate Newbery and Caldecott databases. Databases so detailed that once they’re live, we will be able to slice and dice the data in ways we’ve never dreamed of. Think data-driven posts like this turned up to 11.
We need your help. Will you help? If you’re up for it, send me an email at email@example.com.
If enough folks are willing to lend a hand, we can make this thing real.
