    Google Maps: 19th Century Concord Digital Archive


    I have a confession to make: I’ve never used Google Maps.

    Well, not “never.” I used it once, before I went to Paris, to see the University where I was dorming. However, besides that one experience, I had never used Google Maps. Until tonight!

    This week in class we will …

    “We Walk” to Make a Difference


    This week’s assignment for my Digital Literary Studies class is to follow a few Digital Humanities tweeters on Twitter. (Who knew there were so many DH tweeters! I guess I should have guessed. You can tell I’m not too familiar with Twitter…!) I followed quite a few of them! There …

    Exploring Google Ngram


    Tonight I explored Google Ngram, but it wasn’t the first time I did so. I find Google Ngram to be a very interesting tool, a tool that I could spend quite a bit of time playing with. I find it fascinating to track a word, or words, in lots and …

    What’s up, Digital Humanities?


    When I think about my relationship with the the Digital Humanities, a few things come to mind. I think about the way in which the internet and technology are not only changing the way we communicate, but the way we teach and the way we learn, too. I think about …

    Digging Through the Archives


    I just spent some time “digging” through some of the archives that my professor gave my class to look at. On my initial search through the archives, I was quite overwhelmed at the amount of information. There were so many books, letters, manuscripts, and the like to look at! I …

    Google Ngram Experience


    I just had my first experience with Google Ngram. My first thought upon viewing the website, its search boxes, and large graphs was: “How do I work this?!” It seemed a little overwhelming at first. I wasn’t sure what to search. Yes, that’s right, I had all sorts of possible …

    Another Aphorism?


    As I was reading Dave Egger’s The Circle the other night, I came across another interesting aphorism that I wanted to share with you:

    “Privacy is theft (303).”

    Towards the second half of the novel, this phrase gets a lot of attention. “The Circlers,” as the narrator aptly calls them, …
