blog  Humanities Computing and web2.0.

Feb 2008

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.
