Day of Digital Humanities

I’ve always toyed with a possible ‘day in the life’ project where you use digital tools to let a community document itself for a day. Capture the local paper, radio, set up places where people can scan whatever they like, make camera’s available. And provide a simple front end so the community itself can upload, annotate, tag, and self describe their own stuff. A snapshot. So it is with pleasure that I read an email from Geoffrey Rockwell describing the third annual day of the digital humanities.
