  1. Cuauhte9moc Garceda-Garceda:May 20, 2011: The Future of Digital HumanitiesI very much enjoyed the dbteae about the future of Digital Humanities. It was clear from the discussion that the enormous amount of information appearing in the daily basis demands new methodologies to make a coherent interpretation, data analysis, etc. I feel digital humanities offers a good approach to tackle problems in humanities that involve large amounts of data. I disagree with some of the audience that digital humanities will be a field reserved mostly to computer scientists. Even though the methodologies will come mostly from computer science, the interesting questions still will appear within the different fields of humanities. In my experience, it is hard to make good questions if you are not immersed in the field. So, computer scientist will need to familiarize themselves with humanities and vice versa humanities people will need to learn new methodologies. Both ways offer challenges. What I found most exciting about this field is the possibility of analyzing hundreds of years of digitized archives to answer questions about writing trends across centuries and cultures. I found this very fascinating.
