Digital Humanities 2011

The GAP team recently returned from Digital Humanities 2011 conference at Stanford where we gave a paper. Not only was it a highly enjoyable conference, it also gave us the first opportunity for all four of us to sit in the same room together at the same time! Elton and Leif made it out a week early to visit Eric in beautiful Berkeley and get some last minute coding done, helped by some earlier text crunching by Kate. This really helped us get to a point where GAP is starting to deliver on its promise: the ability to visualise the spatiality of texts, and discover texts associated with places. On top of that we also had a stimulating discussion with Google’s John Orwant, saw some great papers and ate like kings 🙂
