What do you do in your spare time during a busy, week-long conference?
B) Have a beer
C) Set up new OpenAustralia sites
Labs is a place to showcase some of our more crazy experiments, or just things that aren’t quite ready for prime-time.
We have two experiments already posted to labs with more coming soon:
The Register of Interests Transcriber is Tim’s tool for turning the scanned register we opened up about a year ago into searchable passages of text. It’s been looking for a home since Tim created it a few months ago.
This is a tool we’d really like to see emerge from the labs and appear on the live OpenAustralia.org site so if you think you could help make it more polished, please check out the code and start discussing it on our Community mailing list.
If you have any experiments you’d like to try out and demonstrate on OpenAustralia Labs, please don’t hesitate to discuss it on our community mailing list or create a ticket against the new Labs component on our issue tracker.
