Volunteering with Thinkwalks

by Joel Pomerantz

June 23rd, 2010

In the recent past, a number of folks have generously volunteered their time to help with publicity, research, social networking, design and other aspects of Thinkwalks. If you have an idea of how you’d like to help, please let me know.

Some of the clear needs at the moment are for people to help compile information either from bibliographies or from very old news articles on the Great Storm and Flood. And to distribute (to cafés) the wonderful flyers Martina D’Alessandro designed in her volunteer gig. Also, there’s a volunteer design project underway in mapping some of SF’s great public art locations, if you have ideas or want to help. If you have skill in FileMaker Pro, there’s some adjustment (or even data entry) to be done with the database. And some very nerdy research to do on fun subjects like finding schematics of an old bridge in GG Park, lawsuits from 1862 about a lake that is described but not reliably enough to be sure it existed.

So if you have an interest in figuring out the past and/or microfilmed newspapers get in touch!

Here’s Martina’s sweet flyer. It’s two sided, folded. It ends up 5″ x 5″—perfect for a self-standing table card or flapping protrusion from a bulletin board. Flapping protrusion! Is that racy or what!?
