This is really exciting news, and not least of all for me. Years and years ago, I did a “Summer Institute” course at the University of New Brunswick Fredricton on electronic texts – it was where I first cut my teeth on XML and TEI – but I have never attended a THATCamp before. For that reason, I’m honestly not sure what to expect. I do, however, love the premise of this kind of “unconference,” and the kind of dialogue and intellectual exchange that it is designed to encourage.
I am slated to lead a workshop on “Hypertext and Digital Archives,” which will be very cool. I need to think of ways of making this both useful in a practical “hands-on” sense, but also flexible enough that participants are able to determine the direction that we take. Ideas as to the best way(s) of going about that are more than welcome!
Seriously. How does one go about this?
