For the last year I’ve been co-chairing an ICANN working group on Translation and Transliteration of Contact Information, an issue which will arise once the current ASCII-based Whois directory of domain name contacts is replaced by a system allowing domain name holders to input data in their own languages and scripts.

Day of DH 2011 logo

After Day of Digital Humanities 2009 and 2010, the third iteration of the event is about to happen. A word from the organiser:

Digital humanists are invited to participate in the third annual Day of Digital Humanities, a project tracking 24 hours in the field of digital humanities. On March 18th, 2011 individuals in the field or related professions will document the events of their day with photos and discussion. 

This project is an online collaborative publication, with each participant co-authoring and decisions made communally. However, participating in the Day of DH shouldn't require a large time commitment. Most of the work will be in uploading short entries and photographs during the documentation day. The degree of involvement beyond that will be up to you. To find out about this interaction and the previous two iterations of the Day of Digital Humanities see: 

Day in the Life of the Digital Humanities 2011

This project is intended to bring members of all types and from around the field together to post about what they do and reflect on what others are doing. We particularly encourage graduate students, developers and international colleagues to participate. You don't have to be "important"; you don't have to write in English; and you don't have to have a lot of experience in the field. Your opinions count! 

To participate please fill out the application form by March 15th, 2011. 

Apply now at A Day in the Life of Digital Humanities 2011 and mark the 18th of March down for the next Day of Digital Humanities.

Yours, 

Geoffrey Rockwell
