Just back from giving a talk called “Digital Cultural Heritage: Concepts and Opportunities” in Amsterdam, where I talked about VV, Wired, and a bit about our thinking in making the version 1 of Ghett/App. I was invited by the Vrije Universiteit Amsterdam program in Art and Culture and Research Institute CLUE+, along with the Netherlands Institute for Sound and Vision. Such an great opportunity to discuss the intersection of DH with cultural heritage with these colleagues. I learned a lot about how such work in conceived in the Netherlandish context, and now have extreme envy for any academics who get to work with them and their resources! Trying to figure out a way do do a “Visualizing Cities: Amsterdam” project in the future…. I shared top billing with potted plans, and also debuted a rather silly but useful to make radial diagram designed to illustrate the interconnections of disciplines that go into VV.
