Blog post about the current state of digital humanities and how to keep track of what is going on in the field through twitter. Also includes a tool that collects tweets and publishes them in a journal format. \n\nExcellent ideas here.

Scholar from George Mason University who blogs about Digital Humanities and wrote the book Digital History.
Any faculty member who looks at this chart should feel ashamed. We professors care less about sharing our work—even with underprivileged nations that cannot afford access to gated resources—than with making sure we impress our colleagues.

This committee is charged with producing a set of guidelines for departments to use in processes of hiring, tenure, and promotion. The work of this committee will not only help departments deal with existing means for publishing scholarship in digital formats (ebooks, blogs, websites, etc.), but by creating paths to more formal recognition for projects and historians, it will encourage experimentation and recognize the value of new forms of scholarly communication. - See more at: http://blog.historians.org/2014/01/committee-professional-evaluation-digital-scholarship-historians/#sthash.KrCj0yTi.dpuf
