Late in 2015 I attended the Europeana Sound edit-a-thon, the purpose of which was to add wildlife recordings from the British Library Sound Archive to their matching Wikipedia articles. It sounds really geeky (and it is), but it was also extremely rewarding and actually quite a lot of fun!
Julia Lorke was there as well and put together a report for the BBC Click podcast (it starts at 20:00). Hopefully she will also upload it to her SoundCloud page at some point.
I am somewhat embarrassed listening to it because I come across as being really, really excited about the Canada Goose. It’s got a distinctive honk, yes, but it’s otherwise a vicious, nasty bird and gives Canadians a bad name.
And for the record, I have yet to spend a Friday or Saturday night adding sound recordings to Wikipedia, but that is still within the realm of possibility…
