I’ve just posted to the Pleiades wiki the prepared text portion of the presentation I gave last Saturday during a session of the annual meeting of the American Philological Association.
It introduces the project with a Google Earth use case, and goes on to touch on the following themes:
- project goals
- project phases (some new stuff here for discussion in this forum — we’re thinking seriously about the character and activities of phase 2, beyond the current NEH grant)
- obsolescence and the functions of humanities reference works in the dawning era of millions of digital books
- what that means for Pleiades
The text breaks off at the point the demonstration portion began; that part was done extemporaneously.
