Whenever I’ve taught folks how to do some basic HTML and CSS, the first thing they want to change are the styles for links on the page. And who can blame them? The default colors for links are pretty lame, as you can see in my first example page on CodePen. For those who don’t…. More.
Learning programming languages is both exciting, fascinating, and a bit overwhelming for me. While I find that I’m typically pretty good at learning new languages I’m having difficulty getting energized about learning the back end of building what we see on the web. Ironically, one of the main reasons I applied for Praxis was to…. More.
When the SLab folks recommended we split into groups and begin creating wireframes for our Ivanhoe games, my first thought was, “How can we start building when we don’t really know what we’re doing yet?” However, talking about what we were doing in the abstract had been generating somewhat circular discussion, so I took a….

We’re pleased to announce that applications are open for a 2-day, NEH-funded symposium and summit to be held at the Scholars’ Lab this November 4th and 5th. “Speaking in Code” will bring together a small cohort of accomplished digital humanities software developers. Together, we will give voice to what is almost always tacitly expressed in DH…. More.

[Cross-posted on my personal website] I’ve just returned from two thought-provoking days of conversations about assessment and authority in new modes of scholarly production, the second in a series of three SCI meetings on the topic. We’ll synthesize the key outcomes and insights into a report very soon. For the moment, though, I want to…. More.
While playing around with the CSS gradients that put the highlighting for each “facet” into lanes over the text, I think I’ve come up with an interesting new proposal for what the highlighting might look like: I like this because it allows each facet’s highlight to be full height—thus feeling more like a highlighter pen….

The design team got together again this week and we have mocked up a map of how the site will proceed. Those who are interested can see it here: prismmap There are quite a few new pages that we are adding so we hope this map will make it easier to see how the progression works. As we…. More.
