Digital Humanities in 2007 [Part 1 of 3] « Digital Scholarship in the Humanities

Excellent three-part post from Lisa Spiro. People, this is the kind of thing Vannevar Bush imagined scholars would do when he dreamed up the Memex — saving each other time by sharing annotated lists.  This blog has landed on my RSS list.  Part 1 and Part 2 are up; I’ll add the link to Part 3 when it appears.  (Update: Part 3)

I love reading year-end summaries and lists. Even if the judgments can
seem arbitrary, such lists let me know about things I missed and remind
me of what matters. Here I offer my own impressions of significant
goings-on in and around digital humanities in 2007. Since a lot
happened this year, I’ll divide these musings into 3 posts. Post 1 will
focus specifically on digital humanities initiatives; post 2 on mass
digitization, reading, and scholarly communications; and post 3 will
examine databases, virtual reality, social networking, and “green”
digital humanities, as well as present some simple stats on the ideas
that generated the most buzz. Please see http://del.icio.us/lms4w/DH2007 for links to all of the papers and web sites mentioned here (links are also embedded in the post, of course).
