David Rumsey gave the opening keynote lecture for the Digital Humanities 2011 Conference at Stanford University on June 19, 2011.
If you like maps and you like technology, you should greatly enjoy this presentation. Rumsey, one of the world's foremost map collectors, takes some of his ancient (and not so ancient) maps and through technological manipulation turns them into even more expressive tools of meaning and story.
A wonderful 40 minute session. And don't be fooled as I was; this is a video. It just doesn't start to move until several minutes in. -JL
