[Every Wednesday I’ll recommend one of the blogs I follow. Yes, I still follow the best of the best using a feed reader. You’ll be able to check the list @ this blog’s header.]
I started to follow Dan Cohen’s work since I found his book “Digital History”, co-authored with Roy Rosenzweig, back in 2006 or 2007. For many years, Cohen was director of the Roy Rosenzweig Center for History and New Media, that gave us the best reference manager ever, Zotero, as well as many other software, resources, and truly innovative projects like One Week | One Tool, Hacking the Academy or THATCamp.
During the last year, Dan Cohen’s blog didn’t receive updates, due to his new job as Executive Director of the Digital Public Library of America (DPLA), but a recent post tell us we can expect more articles in the future. Meanwhile, I recommend you to check the Best of the Blog section, where you’ll find posts that “have more lasting value and continue to garner new readers and links years later“.
Also, he’ll be a keynote speaker at the conference Digital Humanities in Portugal: building bridges and breaking barriers in the digital age, that will be held in Lisbon, later this year.
