“Rome Wasn’t Digitized in a Day”: Building a Cyberinfrastructure for Digital Classicists
September 10th, 2011 by Simon Mahony
A web only publication by Alison Babeu with good coverage of the Stoa and the Digital Classicist. Published under a Creative Commons Attribution-NonCommercial-ShareAlike 3.0 Unported License.
The author provides a summative and recent overview of the use of digital technologies in classical studies, focusing on classical Greece, Rome, and the ancient Middle and Near East, and generally on the period up to about 600 AD. The report explores what projects exist and how they are used, examines the infrastructure that currently exists to support digital classics as a discipline, and investigates larger humanities cyberinfrastructure projects and existing tools or services that might be repurposed for the digital classics.

I am quite happy that my One Era’s Nonsense, Another’s Norm article is quoted in this report. If nothing else, interdisciplinary work is getting noticed.
