Hello all and welcome to my blog.
From here I hope to continue my research into the digital humanities as part of the course work involved in the seminar, but I also hope to develop further some of the ideas, comments and opinions being expressed in the classes and discussion groups online.
The most recent of these discussions has revolved around the nature of anonymity on the web and the positive and negative aspects that can result. It has been recommended that we all have a look at Jaron Lanier’s Manifesto “You are not a Gadget”. As part of my research I came across an online .pdf of this work here. I look forward to reading it and being able to include my responses in further posts.
