Big Data, Remote Processing, and Fast Networks in the Digital Humanities

The evolving nature of digital humanities is creating an expanding need for big data, fast networks and high performance computing systems to support the access and visualization requirements. These projects require new collaboration among technologists, scholars, librarians and others. This presentation focuses on two projects that exemplify these collaborations and the significant IT contributions needed in supporting 21st Century humanities research and teaching. 

Speakers: Dennis Cromwell, Executive Director, Media Preservation and Digitalization Initiative at Indiana University; Tassie Gniady, Manager, Cyberinfrastructure for Digital Humanities and Creative Activities at Indiana University; and Todd Swanson, Digital Imaging Manager at J.

"Life of a Packet"

Early in his career as a network engineer, while interviewing at a large networking company, the interview team lead told Dan, "You have an impressive-looking resume. But we don't really care about that." He pointed at a whiteboard. "Tell us exactly how a packet is built, travels across a network, and arrives at a destination host, and don't leave anything out." Dan nervously stood up and started drawing and telling the story of the life of a packet. Heads nodded and he got the job, although he didn't stay long before he decided to go back to work at Clemson. Today, any time someone asks Dan how a network works, he stands in front of a whiteboard and tells the story of the life of a packet.
