    Hi Cynthia, thanks so much for posting this. What did you guys think about it?

    A few of us were discussing it last night after the Siva/Anya talk. In general (if I’m not misrepresenting the conversation) the feeling was that it was a decent article, but we had some concerns about the “Humanities 2.0” formulation (annoying for non-digital humanists) and the framing of DH vs theory.

    Cool though that it stayed in the top-emailed list for a couple of days. Though the comments make some depressing reading – a variety pack of hostilities (directed at DH, the humanities, technology, the university…). This one’s my personal favorite:

    Some more news today: an international group of DHers just launched 4Humanities, a (much needed) site to help advocate for the humanities.
