Abstract (at least 300 words to describe your proposal)
This is a workshop closely linked to the submitted presentation Distributed Content Liberation. While the presentation is meant to focus on one particular toolkit to empower volunteers in content liberation efforts, this workshop wants to broaden the subject. It is meant as a collaborative session to collect, present, compare and improve existing and proposed tools that facilitate dealing with large amount of content, starting at the negotiation, uploading and curation process.

Special emphasis is intended for the dealings with meta-data that in an ideal world exists in reasonable quality for every digital object but rarely does in the kind of real world we live in. While most tools should never replace the actual intellectual process in the augmentation of metadata, they can provide valuable shortcuts for the person dealing with it.

Preferred output of this workshop is a set of ideas that tackle real world usage scenarios and a clear path towards implementation and presentation at the 2013 Wikimania or any virtual or real life event in-between.
