Spent some time hacking over the weekend. And here's the result: a minimalist interactive version of Wittgenstein's Tractatus.
As part of the New Directions in the Digital Humanities series this week we had a very inspiring presentation from Dr Paul Millar, Associate Professor and Head of the Department of English, Cinema and Digital Humanities, the University of Canterbury (NZ). The talk focused on the CEISMIC project, with which Millar and his team intended to 'crowdsource' a digital resource to preserve the record of the earthquakes’ impacts, document the long-term process of recovery, and discover virtual solutions to issues of profound heritage loss.

Last week I spent two interesting days in London, at the Epistemic Networks and GRID Web 2.0 for Arts and Humanities workshop. I went there representing PhiloSURFical and Cohere, but unfortunately due to technical reasons the fliers I've prepared to let this community know about our work were not handed out on time. The printers at Imperial College didnt want to work for me :-). Too bad.. I managed anyway to spread the word a bit, and the reactions have been very very positive.
