A Day in Humanities Computing

What if we organized a project around documenting what computing humanists do. “A Day in Humanities Computing” would be a voluntary project where selected HC people with digital cameras would take pictures of what they are doing and write a TEI encoded document that describes their day. It could be coded with subject headings to allow people to search the journal entries. Above all it should be accessible to give people an idea of what we do.

What would it take to organize:

1. A call to Humanist. It can’t be too much work for any one person.

2. The results should be gathered in some interesting fashion. Could we use blogging software? Should it be a week-long project? Or should it focus on pictures.

3. It would be nice to link the intersections of what people are doing to show the interconnectivity. A map of the world and links between entries would be nice.
