On Saturday I had a great time in Portsmouth for the second ZooCon event of the 2014 calendar. There were a good group of hardcore volunteers in attendance to hear about the future of the Zooniverse and take part in a “wikiathon”, where we tried to improve the extent and accuracy of citizen science articles on Wikipedia. The VOLCROWE team were also there to ask the volunteers about why they love taking part in our projects. Thanks to Karen Masters for organising the event, and to the very helpful representatives from Wikimedia UK!
The next ZooCon event will be held in Oxford on 11th July 2015. Get that date in your calendar now!
