Dear Foldit Community,

we want to share with you a work-in-progress short paper presented last Saturday at a workshop at the European Computer Supported Cooperative Work in Oslo:

Scripts in a Gamified Crowdsourcing Approach to Do Science
Marisa Ponti, Igor Stankovic
Presented at “Examining the Essence of the Crowds: Motivations, Roles and Identities”, a workshop at ECSCW 2015, September 19, 2015, Oslo, Norway

The full text is here: https://marisaponti.wordpress.com/publications/

The short paper presents some initial results from interviews with some players and from online documentation.

We are very grateful to the players who talked with us.

Every comments and thoughts you can share with us is welcome.
