Database on People and Organizations

The core of any project is its people and its organizations which implement it. Good ideas are a penny a dozen, and what counts is implementation, which is done by people, companies, advocacy groups, and government projects.

We have databases on people and organizations, but they need to be updated and better organized.

Working on this is a good way to get to know who's who, and to have a practical reason to interact with good people and engage them.

The general tasks for this project are:

  • Research the web to find people and organizations doing concrete things
    • If not already in our database, then add them.
    • If already in our database, then look at any ways to make their record more complete.
  • Respond to unsolicited inputs from the public.
  • Work with the publications database team to add and refine leads.
  • Work with the programming team to improve the database structure and functionality.

This will become an open, public database, for the most part, once it is cleaned up and put into a consistent, presentable format.

Notably, some of the information we receive has been - and will be - somewhat confidential to very confidential to the source, either explicitly or implicitly, which we should honor, so anybody working on this should have common sense judgment about what goes into the public database versus what stays in a suitably secured offline location. (We are not journalists competing for breaking stories. If you want things to write about, I can suggest many interesting topics from the open literature which journalists simply miss, and I will hope you get it right and balance your coverage.)

This is a volunteer position, but who knows, you might land a better job somewhere with some company as a result of a lead you find and develop here, and your knowledge gained by helping PERMANENT develop.

Like with other projects, we need multiple volunteers for the People and Organizations Database (POD).

By the way, if you haven't already, please add yourself to our People and Organizations Database (POD).
