Inspired by the Open Access Tracking Project, the Invest in Open Infrastructure (IOI) team started the Open Infrastructure Tracking Project (OITP) to monitor news and commentary related to open infrastructure.

OITP runs on TagTeam, an open-source, collaborative tagging platform. TagTeam allows everyone interested to tag online resources, help organize the tagged resources, and follow feeds of tagged items (for example, see OITP’s Twitter feed).

We hope that OITP can become a community-sourced, comprehensive newsfeed to help grow awareness of open infrastructure efforts and lead to more strategic coordination.

For that, we are running our first OITP tagger onboarding call. Join us to learn more about the project, learn to use TagTeam, and meet others passionate about open infrastructure!

The call will be recorded, and we will share the recording on our YouTube channel within the week after the call.

We sincerely invite everyone interested in contributing to this resource to join. In particular, we would like to grow OITP to include more resources in languages other than English - we’d love to hear your thoughts and ideas for this!

We hope to run these onboarding sessions periodically so more people can join and contribute to OITP. Sign up to IOI’s mailing list to stay updated on the latest activities and opportunities from IOI and OITP!

Please don’t hesitate to contact our Engagement Lead Emmy Tsang at emmy [at] investinopen [dot] org if you have any questions regarding this event.
