The Way of Improvement Leads Home: Is There a Difference Between Digital History and Digital Humanities?

The Way of Improvement Leads Home: Is There a Difference Between Digital History and Digital Humanities? | Digital Humanities and Linked Data | Scoop.it
Intriguing Networks's insight:
Much need of more open projects and free access to important historic resources and collections. with great digital tools and less interpretation and narrative. Let the user interact directly with the sources and data by their own discovery , then able to choose and interact with scholarly discourses and layers of interpretation. Some lessons to be learned from serving the sources and documents and media with great toolkits to encourage some direct experience of working with source !materials aka family histories and micro histories.

Intriguing Networks's insight:
With the established ability re big data and analytics and here even with machine learning and a trend towards 'as a service infrastructure' is there a DH opportunity? Are there standards and shared infrastructures that would enable more innovation and pure research? All for original research but if we do not want to reinvent the wheel and learn from, leverage and deploy the best tools can a more strategic approach be adopted to save money as well or at least let it achieve more? Europeana, Jisc, projects out of Edina re Georeferencing etc has informed and enabled for instance British Library crowd sourced map projects but is it all too piecemeal? where can DH and OpenGLAm come together more, as an example. And finally using TEI and Machine Learning what projects have been achieved and again how can these core capabilities be better shared ?

NTT DATA to Contribute to Digital Archiving of Vatican Apostolic Library Manuscripts Mar. 20, 2014 | News Center | NTT DATA | Digital Humanities and Linked Data | Scoop.it
Intriguing Networks's insight:

Vatican archives to be fully digitised but will that mean #openaccess for all?  Starting with 6000 manuscripts already in progress the plan is now to make all the 80,000 manuscripts accessible to mankind. what a fascinating read they will make, assuming there will be full disclosure, what really happened when the Vatican and the Papacy virtually ruled the world?

 

what a resource and what a #digitalhumanities feast this will be. But hope that some european GLAMS and DM2 initiatives will be involved?

The economics of social media and why the Facebook-WhatsApp deal makes sense - Schaefer Marketing Solutions: We Help Businesses {grow}

The economics of social media and why the Facebook-WhatsApp deal makes sense - Schaefer Marketing Solutions: We Help Businesses {grow} | Digital Humanities and Linked Data | Scoop.it
If you look at the economic drivers of Facebook, the WhatsApp deal suddenly makes sense
Intriguing Networks's insight:

In the end its as Mark Schaefer says so concisely on his blog Grow, it is really all about GROW THE GRAPH

 

"

1) Obtaining more users, and then increasing the amount of personal information collected about those users that can be turned into targeted ads, and

2) Getting users to spend increasing amounts of time on these platforms so they can see more ads.

I think you have to view every announcement and investment Facebook makes through this lens. Perhaps we can then consider the acquisition in a new light — it’s all about the data.

Same as Google...Google+ there is no such thing as a free lunch, software application, platform and utility i exchange for targeting data, is that so unreasonable and how many ads do you have to sell to get the $16 billion return plus profit...

Twitter is sharing its massive trove of data with the academic world — for free.

 

The social networking outfit has long sold access to its enormous collection of tweets — a record of what the people of the world are doing and saying — hooking companies like Google and Yahoo into the “Twitter fire hose.” But now, through a new grant program, it wants to make it easier for social scientists and other academics to explore its tweet archive, which stretches back to 2006. ...

‘Kindred Britain’ maps 30,000 people in British history | Digital Humanities and Linked Data | Scoop.it

A fantastic new visualisation work has been released today titled ‘Kindred Britain‘. Created by Nicholas Jenkins and Elijah Meeks of Stanford University in partnership with Scott Murray (amongst others) the project offers a deep, exploratory interface into a network of nearly 30,000 key figures in British culture connected through ‘family relationships of blood, marriage, or affiliation’. As the designers describe, ‘it is a vision of the nation’s history as a giant family affair’.
