The 2014 NMC Horizon Project Wiki-Thon Wiki


Welcome to the workspace for the first-ever NMC Horizon Project Wiki-Thon, an invitation-only Horizon Project online event. This wiki is where the members of the Wiki-Thon Expert Panel will engage in a dialog around the NMC's master list of trends, challenges, and technologies that the NMC tracks on an ongoing basis, with the express goal of considering (and ultimately identifying) possible gaps or omissions in those master lists. The new topics we identify in this process will guide the work of the enitre Horizon Project for the next year, and provides us with an invaluable quality control point.

Our work will take place from February 17-28, 2014. When we have finished, a special communiqué will go out to the global Horizon Project audience via all our networks and social media channels that will detail our work, its outcomes, and new topics that we identify, and invite public comment on the results.
