Free Software, Free Culture and Getting To Know Humanists

Henry joins us from Mathematics at Queen’s!

I’d like to understand more about the humanities side of “digital humanities”, since I feel that I have more understanding of the digital part than the humanities part.

My background: I’ve done a bunch of work on Free software, mostly for the KDE project. I did a Google summer of code project for the KStars planetarium on rewriting the graphics system. I’m particularly interested in the intersection of free software and free culture, and all these sorts of tangential issues around copyright, access to knowledge, and in particular control/surveillance/censorship of networks.
