The Unheard City

Some time ago, I mentioned a project that was starting called the Unheard City to explore sonification of Internet of Things devices and the phone. Well, it is alive, or coming to be. The Unheard City website is coming into being with the sounds here and is the subject of a talk this Sunday at […]

Refreshing the blog

This is slightly more as an aide memoire than a post but Mark Carrigan has written a useful post on about academic blogging on the Post-Pandemic University blog, Academic blogging – both/and rather than either/or. The note towards discussing research that is already written or planned is the part that resonates. I suspect that, like […]

An Experimental Philosophy of Technology

Philosophy and Technology has an interesting article on the idea of Experimental Philosophy of Technology or Techxphi, by Steven R. Kraaijeveld. The argument seems to focus mainly on developing the ethical side. It seems like a way of testing various intuitions and assumptions and might be an area to keep an eye on to see […]

Olia Liliana‘s end-to-end, peer-to-peer, my-to-me session set up a […]

25 years of blogging

John Naughton has a good piece on the 25th anniversary of blogging. It set of undeveloped trains of thought where I need to re-read some history.

The tacit problem of reproducibility

I was giving a talk at the Digital Humanities Oxford Summer School on reproducibility this year and had an intriguing question. A review of a recent conference paper reminds me of this. At the end of the lecture, I pose two questions: Can someone on your group reproduce one of your results using available information […]

Thoughts on Carpentry Connect

Having left ICAD at some ungodly hour in the morning on Wednesday, I arrived in Manchester for Carpentry Connect Manchester, organised by the Carpentries and the Software Sustainability Institute (SSI). The opening talk, Learning from the Carpentries, was given by Lex Nederbragt. It focused on building skills with practice, finding the cognitive load, and the […]

Oblique Strategies

I came across Brandon Walsh’s Thirteen Oblique Strategies for Digital Humanities. This needs some further details but an initial thought is that it offers a way to think about DH and how it can be considered for students. One to come back and reflect on.
