Day of Digital Humanities, 18 March 2010

[17 March 2010]

Tomorrow I’ll be participating in a mass experiment with self-consciousness, the 2010 edition of the Day of Digital Humanities. The organizers have persuaded close to 150 people who self-identify with the description “digital humanist” (list) to blog, during the course of 18 March, about what it is they actually spend their time doing. “The goal of the project” (say the organizers) “is to create a web site that weaves together the journals of the participants into a picture that answers the question, ‘Just what do computing humanists really do?’”

For the day, I’ll be using the special Day of Digital Humanities blog set up for me by the organizers; the blogs of all participants are aggregated on the project site; there is also an RSS feed.
