Reposted from Day of DH: DH and Being Flexible

This is reposted from the Day of DH 2013 site.

I had hoped to actually be able to post during the Day of DH 2013, but the day quickly got busier than expected, which is normal, and new things popped up, again which is normal. While my work focuses on building and sustaining the full socio-technical needs for scholarly cyberinfrastructure, including data curation and digital libraries and digital humanities work, the parameters and borders and connections for my work have many different threads. This means things change rapidly and, even when they don’t, there’s just a lot going on. I’m not sure of a great way to explain this, so I’ll list a few things. While to list is to limit and that’s not my goal, I do want to give a sampling of activities:

There’s a whole lot more, but these are just some of the activities reflected in the 50-ish emails I sent from yesterday (in addition to in-person discussions and phone calls, and emails received without responses being sent). This is by no means comprehensive, but it gives a good sampling of some of the activities in a normal day and of the always-active pace of each day. I’ve stolen this hour to write this, but I do try to make or steal time on a regular basis to write about different happenings on my blog, so this stolen hour is also part of a normal day.
