在西元（以下同）2014 年 3 月 18 日的晚間，學生與社運人士們突擊並佔領了台灣立法院的議場。這個事件引爆整起 318 公民運動(太陽花公民運動)，昭示了一個台灣歷史的轉捩點。中央研究院的研究員們在抗爭行動和平落幕之前，設法取得了議場內的所有支援物件與檔案材料。在這篇短文，我們討論了將當代事件中由數千名參與者創造的大量文物予以典藏，並向公眾開放的相關議題。本文將展示一項設計來鼓勵參與者在典藏庫指認其所有物件的系統。也說明一項可親近的典藏目錄系統，如何能夠幫助大眾述說自己的故事，而能集體強化公眾對此公民運動的記憶。（本文翻譯自第一作者發表於 2017 年數位人文國際會議的英文論文摘要，但新增後記一節。本文以「創用CC 姓名標示 4.0」 (CC BY 4.0) 授權條款釋出。）
Remembrance of Contemporary Events: On Setting Up The Sunflower Movement Archive
Tyng-Ruey Chuang and Yuan-Chih Tseng
In the late evening of March 18, 2014, students and activists stormed into and occupied the main chamber of Taiwan's Legislature. The event set off the Sunflower Movement, signifying a turning point in Taiwan's history. Researchers at Academia Sinica arranged to acquire all the supporting artifacts and documentary materials in the chamber before the protest came to a peaceful end. In this paper, we discuss the issues in archiving and making available to the public a large collection of artifacts created by thousands of participants in a contemporary event. We demonstrate systems designed to encourage people to identify items of their own in the archive. We show how an accessible catalog to the archive can help people tell their stories hence collectively may strengthen the public's recollections about the movement.

Tim Berners-Lee: "It's dangerous having a handful of companies control how ideas and opinions are shared."
"The Daybreak Project is an interactive encyclopedia and oral history archive of the 2014 Sunflower Movement."
This collection represents a truly comprehensive effort in documenting the multiple aspects of the Sunflower Movement. It is compiled by Brian Hioe, a Taiwanese-American who was studying in Taiwan at the time of the Movement. Brian is fearless and has my admiration.

This is so very useful, even for someone who is used to LaTex etc.
Being reminded that I recorded these words three years ago. More than ever I now care about trees over animals.

The Lunar New Year almost over. So many things to take care and to worry about, on Earth. Not so on Jupiter.

Bernard Marszalek, founding member of the Network of Bay Area Worker Cooperatives, reviews three recent books on cooperatives.

The review gives me a lot to think about. I like that the reviewer emphasizes collective management over collective ownership, and I think this is especially so for public goods e.g. free software. Software Freedom Conservancy as such is admired for being the Network of Global Area Software Cooperatives.
