Reposting from 2013 Day of DH

Below is re-posted from my postings for the 2013 Day of DH (Digital Humanities), and I’ll be adding other postings to that blog and re-posting here throughout the day.

Plans for today: Meeting on Geospatial Tools and SobekCM Open Source Software, UF Digital Humanities Working group on Digital Pedagogy, Data Curation Group Discussion, and More
For 2013′s Day of DH (Digital Humanities), I have a fairly calm schedule with meetings and action items to-do. The planned schedule at least appears fairly calm, but seemingly calm days can easily get hectic with new conversations and opportunities.
For the first few hours of the morning, I’m catching up on email related to the Data Curation/Management Task Force and other activities. I’ll soon be off to a meeting on geospatial tools and supports within the SobekCM Digital Repository Software which is Open Source and currently being extended for a few specific grant projects. After that, there’s the regular meeting of the University of Florida Digital Humanities Working Group (UF DHWG), which will focus on Digital Pedagogy – Discussion and Recommendations from the DHWG.
For now, time to follow-up on email and prepare agendas for the day.

Below is from the group site for the Day of DH.

About Day of DH

Welcome to Day of DH 2013!
A Day in the Life of the Digital Humanities (Day of DH) is an open community publication project that will bring together scholars interested in the digital humanities from around the world to document what they do on one day.  This year, Day of DH will take place on April 8th. The goal of the project is to create a web site that weaves together a picture of the participant’s activities on the day which answers the question, “Just what do digital humanists really do?” Participants  document their day through photographs and text, all of which is published on a community online platform (which, for this year, lives at Both during and after the day, people are encouraged to read and comment on their fellow participant’s posts.  Eventually, all the data will be grouped together, undergo some light semantic editing, and released for others to study. We hope that, beyond the original online publication, the raw data will be of use to those interested in further visualization or digital community ethnographic research.
