I’m intending to use Gingko to gather a LOT of information from a large group of collaborators concerning the United States Constitution.
For instance, imagine a high percentage of Madison’s notes (a book nearly 1,000 pages long) cross-referenced to sections of the Constitution. Add to that the Federalist Papers (700 pages+). Add to that Supreme Court dozens of cases on each portion of the Constitution.
We are talking tens of thousands, if not hundreds of thousands of cards in a HUGE tree created by potentially dozens of collaborators.
The purpose is to build a “hierarchical reference database” from which others can build education and training materials. This will be a multi-year project to gather huge amounts of source material together.
I have been looking for several weeks for a tool which allows multiple collaborators to simultaneously contribute to this “tree of knowledge” on the Constitution. After looking at (and even trying) dozens of collaboration solutions, I keep coming back to Gingko. The key feature which draws me back is mult-user collaboration on chunks of text (cards).
Question: What is the largest tree you now have on the system?
Question: Only you know the internals of the file system. Will it handle such large tree structures?
Question: How many collaborators can we have?
Question: Is it possible to have “read only” viewers?
I value your thoughts and guidance on whether Gingko is the right tool for such a use case. Thanks!!
