‘Digital’ Is Not the Opposite of ‘Humanities’
Sarah E. Bond, Hoyt Long, and Ted Underwood respond to Timothy Brennan's recent hit piece on the digital humanities: "Critiques of disciplinary change, digital or otherwise, are always useful. But the most valuable criticism of digital approaches to date has come from scholars who try to understand the methods they are criticizing. Neither technophilic enthusiasm nor uninformed caricature contributes much to this goal."

The Digital-Humanities Bust
I wonder when most digital humanities scholars stopped reading Timothy Brennan's uninformed rant in the Chronicle of Higher Education. For me, it was right here: "Few humanists today are ignorant of Moodles, podcasts, auto-formatting, or deep internet research." Ah yes, please say more about the Moodles.

A better way to teach technical skills to a group
Great suggestions from Miriam Posner designed to solve a perpetual problem with in-class workshops: "The instructor issues directions while students try to keep up at each step. Some students accomplish each step quickly, but some students take a little longer to find the right menu item or remember where they’ve saved a file. No matter how often you tell students to please interrupt or raise a hand if they need help, most students won’t do this. They don’t want to slow everyone else down with what they’re sure is a stupid question. Eventually, these students stop trying to follow along, and the workshop becomes, in their minds, further evidence that they’re not cut out for this."

An Introduction to Version Control Using GitHub Desktop
Daniel van Strien's step-by-step tutorial might be helpful for people who want to use GitHub but aren't ready to go all-in with the command line: "In this lesson you will be introduced to the basics of version control, understand why it is useful and implement basic version control for a plain text document using GitHub Desktop."

Machine Learning is Fun!
Adam Geitgey: "This guide is for anyone who is curious about machine learning but has no idea where to start. I imagine there are a lot of people who tried reading the wikipedia article, got frustrated and gave up wishing someone would just give them a high-level explanation. That’s what this is. The goal is be accessible to anyone — which means that there’s a lot of generalizations. But who cares? If this gets anyone more interested in ML, then mission accomplished."

Museum of Everyday Writing
Cool Omeka site: "Welcome to the Museum of Everyday Writing! Often, writing that is studied and curated focuses on workplace and school writing or writing composed by a famous person. The Museum of Everyday Writing (MoEW), however, is dedicated to the writing that is typically unseen or unacknowledged. We believe these texts are worth attending to because they help form and sustain social relationships and organize our everyday lives. We hope this museum can be a resource for researchers, teachers, students, and others interested in everyday writing."

What I learned analyzing 7 months of Donald Trump's tweets
Some interesting text analysis, by Zachary Crockett: "After filtering out retweets, quotes from other people, and article titles, I ended up with a list of 2,500 tweets. That's 44,231 words, or 263,624 characters, of unadulterated Trumpisms. Here’s what I found."

Am I a Digital Humanist? Confessions of a Neoliberal Tool
I really like Matthew Kirschenbaum's meandering response to the recent LA Review of Books kerfuffle: "DH is not about killing the humanities and it’s not about saving the humanities; it’s about colleagues sitting around a prefab table doing business, and working for what everyone genuinely believes, more or less, to be the greater good: Keeping the major healthy, sustaining the size and strength of the faculty, and generally making the department a place that people want to inhabit to pursue the things that matter to them."

Exploratory Programming for the Arts and Humanities
"This book introduces programming to readers with a background in the arts and humanities; there are no prerequisites, and no knowledge of computation is assumed. In it, Nick Montfort reveals programming to be not merely a technical exercise within given constraints but a tool for sketching, brainstorming, and inquiring about important topics. He emphasizes programming’s exploratory potential—its facility to create new kinds of artworks and to probe data for new ideas."

Interesting text mining project to measure collective happiness levels, as expressed on Twitter: "Our hedonometer is based on people’s online expressions, capitalizing on data-rich social media, and we’re measuring how people present themselves to the outside world.

Why We Need Social Paper
I don't know much about Social Paper (yet), but Erin Glass makes a beautiful argument for rethinking student writing as public writing: "Every year, enough papers are written by American students to almost reach the moon. And if one considers student writing globally, that distance expands beyond imagination. I want you picture this enormous chain of words stretching from earth and into outer space, and then I want you to ask yourself who is reading that writing. I want you to ask what we learn about the practical power of speech when we practice speaking to nobody."

Archiving Our Online Communities
Too many websites just disappear, so Craig Mod and the Hi.com team deserve huge kudos for developing a 10,000-year archiving plan: "[W]e understand the moral duty we took on in creating Hi.co — in opening it up to submissions and user generated content. There was an implicit pact: You give us your stories about place, and we’ll give you a place to put your stories. This was not an ephemeral pact. Hi.co is not Snapchat. And so we do not take this moral duty lightly."

Github Fever
Mark Sample republishes a post from 2012 to see if this prediction has come true: "I’d like to suggest that the seeming ubiquity of GitHub in DH conversations has less to do with GitHub itself than what GitHub stands for. A culture of sharing, a generosity of spirit, and the bricoleur’s impulse to turn existing bits and pieces into something new. GitHub is — and will continue to be — symbolically central to the digital humanities, but in practice it will remain on the periphery, a fever and for most humanists nothing more."

Ph.D.s Embrace Alternative Dissertations. The Job Market May Not.
Vital Patel, in the Chronicle of Higher Education: "For a variety of reasons, humanities programs at many colleges have started to allow dissertation formats to veer from the traditional book-length monograph. These proj­ects have taken the form of a suite of three or more papers, a documentary, an interactive analysis of a text, or even a comic book. But as more graduate schools support different approaches, hiring-and-promotion practices at most universities lag behind. Ph.D. advisers and doctoral students need to be thinking sooner about how such alternate dissertations will affect career prospects down the line, say graduate-school administrators."

Annotating to Engage, Analyze, Connect and Create
Fantastic piece in the NY Times on the pedagogy of annotation, by Jeremy Dean and Katherine Schulten: "Annotation in academic settings is typically considered a means to an end, a basis for class discussion or points made in a final paper. But annotation can also be a kind of end in itself, or at least more than a rest stop on the way to intellectual discovery. This becomes especially true when annotation is brought into the public and collaborative space of social reading online, and students can see their classmates’ comments alongside their own."

Is Google Books Leading Researchers Astray?
Jacob Brogan, in Slate: "This enormous corpus has inspired researchers to rethink the ways we map the history of language, allowing them to make sweeping claims about the evolution of language and culture. Researchers have, for example, used it to chart changing patterns of celebrity culture or to propose that moral language is waning. The trouble is, we may be arriving at those assertions a little too glibly."

Evan Kindley, writing in the New Republic, on the rise of annotation tools like Genius: "Annotation is a form of literary lingering: It allows us to prolong our experience with a favorite book, to hang around the world of a beloved text a bit longer. But it can also serve as a gateway, for younger readers, to the pleasures of scholarship, by pointing to a larger universe of knowledge beyond."

Will digital books ever replace print?
Craig Mod reflects on his four years of reading ebooks—and his return to print: "[P]rint has endured and continues to endure for good reason. Our relationships to our most meaningful books are long and textured. And until we can trust our digital reading platforms, until the value propositions of digital are made clearer, until the notes and data we produce within them is more accessible and malleable, physical books will remain at the core of our working libraries for a long time coming."

No, e-book sales are not falling, despite what publishers say
Mathew Ingram disputes the recent NY Times article about slipping ebook sales: "[T]he overall size of the e-book market appears to be holding more or less steady, growing at perhaps 1% or so per year. So it’s not so much that the market itself is growing or shrinking by large amounts, it’s more that some within that market are winning while others are losing. That’s a very different picture than the one the New York Times story painted."

Hacking the Humanities
Elias Muhanna, writing in The New Yorker: "In the past decade, digital scholarship has gone from being a quirky corner of the humanities to a mainstream phenomenon, restructuring funding landscapes and pushing tenure committees to develop new protocols for accrediting digital projects. As the stakes have grown, so has an expectation about the role that the “digital turn” might play in revivifying the humanities, effecting a synthesis with the sciences, and other weighty causes. For many of its champions, the tinkering character of the digital humanities represents a kind of artisanal inquisitiveness, a hands-on, tool-building, map-making ethos that chafes against more abstract modes of humanistic inquiry."

Humanities Data: A Necessary Contradiction
Miriam Posner talk at the Harvard Purdue Data Management Symposium: "When you call something data, you imply that it exists in discrete, fungible units; that it is computationally tractable; that its meaningful qualities can be enumerated in a finite list; that someone else performing the same operations on the same data will come up with the same results. This is not how humanists think of the material they work with."

Here and There: Creating DH Community
SO MUCH great advice from Miriam Posner about starting a DH initiative. This bit rings especially true for me: "A durable community forms when people’s labor is valued and rewarded, and it worries me that in the excitement of doing digital humanities, people’s labor sometimes gets erased. This is why I won’t circulate unpaid internship announcements to our students and why I won’t accept volunteer help, even though we have no program budget to speak of. If labor is valuable, the university should reward it, and we all should recognize it, too."
