New Horizons Conference

New Horizons LogoSo I’m at the New Horizons Conference where I’m going to be on a panel on Thursday between the Open Library and Google Books.

The opening talk was by Dan Cohen of George Mason and Zotero. Zotero (Albanian for “I learn”) stands out as a phenomenal success for digital humanities (and he talked about the challenges of that success). Their server talks to about million instances a day, they have a very active user group, they are in alliances with various organizations to extend the project. Now they have figure out how to get ongoing support to keep on improving it.
