DOK's Surface app goes deeply local

When I was in Delft in April for the UGame ULearn conference, I heard about this fascinating local history project that DOK was developing. Seeing this recent video, I’m even more impressed.

I totally love seeing the concept of connecting community members to “deeply local” (a phrase I first heard from used by Kathryn Greenhill) information and resources come together in such a dynamic and playful way. This is a direction that libraries really need to be paying more attention to imho. Going “deeply local” allows libraries to not only shine a light on community value; it, more importantly, provides a very tangible context for libraries to actively engage the community the creation and sharing of new knowledge.

Thanks DOK for providing and sharing another great project of inspiration.
