MACROSCOPE

DATA + CODE + SOCIAL NETWORKS = digital services

DATA

Every day, we create 2.5 quintillion bytes of data.

A quintillion is 1,000 times a quadrillion, which is 1,000 times a trillion, which is 1,000 times a billion.

Where does data come from?What methods were used to gather and analyze data?What cognitive biases do we bring to data interpretation?

DATA SCIENCE "The ability to take data to be able to understand it, to process it, to extract value from it, to visualize it, to communicate it thats going to be a hugely important skill in the next decades." - Hal Varian, founding dean of School of Information - UCBerkeley, Chief Economist - Google

CODE

HTML, PHP/MySQL, Python, Javascript, SQLShare, Google Refine, DataWrangler, DataExplorer, Excel, Fusion Tables, BibSoup, ScraperWiki, Dataverse, FigShare, R, Tableau, Fusion Charts, D3, Protovis, WordPress, Drupal, NoSQL / MongoDB, Solr, and Hadoop

SOCIAL NETWORKS

Tom Scheinfeldt

"In as much as digital humanities is an Internet-based social network, it should come as no surprise that digital humanities looks a lot like the Internet itself. Digital humanities takes more than tools from the Internet. It works like the Internet. It takes its values from the Internet."

- Tom Scheinfeldt -

"...digital humanities starts to look a lot like a social network. Indeed, in some ways digital humanities increasingly is a social network built, for better or worse, on Twitters platform."

- Tom Scheinfeldt -

Why digital services?
