The Humanities and Technology Camp, or THATCamp, was begun by the Center for History and New Media at George Mason University. An "unconference", it's a place where professionals in the fields of humanities and information discuss issues in digital humanities, and how these technological changes affect us all.
THATCamp has since spread to several cities, including Columbus, Ohio. I am honored to be selected as a THATCamp Columbus participant this year.
The (un)conference takes place January 15-16th this year. As such, a good chunk of my writing energies between now and then will be devoted to developing a fascinating and educational session. The novel comes along, albeit slowly.
If you'd like to see what I'm planning on discussing, you can take a look.
