Some of us who work on the computing infrastructure that supports digital humanities talked at THATCamp about the need for a forum where we can discuss non-academic technology topics but with an implicit context of digital humanities. This is a forum where we can share our experience as system administrators and application developers.

I’m missing the types and quality of discussions we had at THATCamp. We were encouraged by the THATCamp organizers to use this blog as a way of continuing our discussions.
So to that end, let me point to The Bamboo Digital Humanities Initiative: A Modest Proposal, a recent and thoughtful blog post by Sorin Matei (Purdue University) on the Project Bamboo that I first learned about via Dan Cohen. I’m in the process of writing a response and am very curious about what you all (THATCampers and others) think about the ideas in the post.

Bess Sadler was quick to realize the need for bot to log our chats, and setup thatcampbot for us. Thanks, Bess! If you’d like to look back on some conversations had in IRC, they’re online now, including separate logs for the room-specific thatcamp channels in 401 and 450.
Although the IRC channel has thinned out from our high of approximately 30 campers, we can keep the conversation going by sticking around. Prospective attendees for next year can do the same. We’re #thatcamp at irc.freenode.net.
