I had joined “g0v hackathon” , a day event last weekend, and took Common Voice as my topic. During the hackathon, we come up with a great idea to collect more CC0 daily chat texts -
Create a #rand0m at our community Slack, instead of default #random channel.
Every Slack instance had a default random channel, and people chat, share random stuff, making jokes… If those texts are all released under CC0, that would be great.
So we create a #rand0m, set the channel topic as below, then I went to #random and ask people to switch, also promote the initiative at the final presentation.
Everything here will release under CC0 to the public domain, chat freely!
That’s all. We have collected 600 sentences in just one day. People are fascinated with the idea. Chat crazy and help the public, how nice it is!
