We are a couple of days away from the Day of DH application submission deadline, and I am wondering if any HASTAC Scholars or members is planning on participating in this great, collaborative project. Here is the link to the Day in the Life of the Digital Humanities 2011 (it also provides a link to the application), a community publication project that looks at a day in the work life of people involved in humanities computing and brings together digital humanists from around the world to document what they do on one day, March 18: http://tapor.ualberta.ca/taporwiki/index.php/Day_in_the_Life_of_the_Digital_Humanities_2011
I plan to make HASTAC part of my Day of DH, and I thought it would be fun to do some sort of collaboration with fellow HASTAC scholars. In addition to cross-posting my Day of DH on the HASTAC blog on March 18, I'm thinking that we could respond to one or two questions that could be posted here (perhaps questions such as "how has a collaboratory like HASTAC enriched your scholarly life and research?"; "what kinds of non-DH/analog activities have been helpful in informing your digital research?"; "what kinds of interesting/serious/funny issues/problems/complexities have you faced or are still struggling with in the world of digital humanities?"; "how has the digital humanities enhanced your research in the humanities in general?"; "what is your favorite DH-related thing to engage in?"; and so on...).
If anyone is interested, we could brainstorm ideas and questions together here, and come up with a simple and fun way to approach a couple or a few questions together on March 18. Anyone in?
