How can we use the 6+ Cities Project to showcase what PECE can do for ethnographic data management, analysis, and expression?

There is so much data generated within the 6+ cities project. I think just pulling all these sites/data together is a single platform/repository is useful. There are many features and requirements baked into PECE that help demystify ethnographic data analysis: the metadata fields required when uploading artifacts, the (shared) analytics, etc. Specifically relating to the 6+ cities project, I'd like to revisit the Eco Ed Literacy Goals and see what new (ethnographically informed) goals should be added at this point, and how the 6+ cities project provides many new examples for the Goals.

Having worked with folks not used to PECE as part of STSinfrastructures for the past couple of years, I think one barrier to making the intellectual critique that PECE responds to and enacts is that it isn't very intuitive or obvious as a platform or even as something that folks can navigate on their own. It takes a fair bit of guidance on our behalf to help folks get accumstomed to PECE. For users to engage with PECE more in-depth, we will need to work toward making it easier for folks to work with.

Having said that, 6+ cities material is rife to demonstrate the potential of PECE as exemplary of reflexive experimental ethnographic practice. I think, in part, the work ahead is to more actively work toward curating contact toward publication on the platform, we could also separately curate the material to exemplify the methodological dimensions of PECE/ TAF.
