Watch The Computers: The Remarkable Story of the ENIAC Programmers Online | Vimeo On Demand on Vimeo
This is the remarkable story of the six young women who programmed the world's first all-electronic programmable computer, ENIAC, as part of a secret US WWII project. They changed the world, but were never introduced and never received credit. These pioneers deserve to be known and celebrated: Betty Snyder Holberton, Jean Jennings Barik, Kay McNulty Mauchly Antonelli, Marlyn Wescoff Meltzer, Ruth Lichterman Teitelbaum and Frances Bilas Spence.

FrankenBook
Frankenbook is a collective reading and collaborative annotation experience of the original 1818 text of Frankenstein; or, The Modern Prometheus, by Mary Wollstonecraft Shelley. The project launched in January 2018, as part of Arizona State University’s celebration of the novel’s 200th anniversary. Even two centuries later, Shelley’s modern myth continues to shape the way people imagine science, technology, and their moral consequences. Frankenbook gives readers the opportunity to trace the scientific, technological, political, and ethical dimensions of the novel, and to learn more about its historical context and enduring legacy.

Open Stacks: Making DH Labor Visible ← dh+lib
In this post, I would like to “browse” the DH stack through three different frames: first, the technology stack of globalized computing; second, the social stack that manifests as institutional infrastructure; and finally, the physical library stacks that are a synecdoche for the information architecture that arranges scholarship. I’m curious to explore what these three frames–technological, social, and physical–could offer in terms of different ways to understand and reveal DH labor in the academy.

"Privatising the Digital Past"
This is the text of a short 'provocation' I presented at an event called Cityscapes: Past, Present and Future. The event took place at Senate House on the 1st of June 2016, and marked the launch of Cities@SAS - an initiative to create a cross-disciplinary dialogue about cities between the institutes of the School of Advanced Studies in the University of London. The evening was fun, and my co-provocateurs were provocative. My contribution was an attempt to worry at the uncomfortable and frequently unnoticed ramifications of putting the remains of the dead online.
