1PHD – 101quotes | Will you help me finish my PhD?
In 2006 I started a PhD in town planning at the Universidad Politécnica de Madrid. I finished the first cycle of courses in 2009 a paper that has been downloaded 15,000 times and started to develop my doctoral thesis.
I have been working on it for over 10 years and I am running out of time!
December 16th is my last possible deadline!
I need your help. I do need your help!
The content is there, however I lack the references.
I have found 101 statements that need to be supported by a quote or a reference.
I don’t think I could do it alone in such a short time.
Will you help me find them?
The thesis is focused on the processes of collective intelligence. Why not activate a process of collective intelligence to finish it?
Why not transform a problem into an opportunity?
So I launch this challenge. An experiment that could allow me to achieve what I would find difficult to achieve on my own, generating knowledge and an open methodology that could be useful for more people.
How does it work?
I have published 101 statements in a public document. Here is the link.
Each statement has a number. If you want to help, just choose one of the statements and add a comment. You can do this directly in the document, by sending an email or through the social networks by referring to the exact number of the quote.
To facilitate the process I have divided the 101 statements into 7 categories.
Every day I will publish the statements of one category.
I will do it in my blog, in my newsletter, social networks!
I will also organize some working sessions in videoconference. They will be short sessions of one hour, one for each of the 7 categories. If you want to participate, please fill in this form.
This is all.
If perhaps this is not your field of action or research, I hope that at least soon I will be able to share the methodology of this action so that it can be useful to be applied in another context. I also thank you if you pass this message to other people who you think can help me.
