Today I packed my things, moved out of my DC apartment, and headed out to George Mason University for One Week | One Tool, a self-billed digital humanities barn raising organized by the Center for History and New Media, in which a group of twelve intrepid souls from different backgrounds will conceive, design, and prototype a tool that will be both useful and used by our audience. This will involve thoughtful guidance, wild brainstorming, teamwork and project management, lots of hard work, plenty of caffeine, and presumably a fair bit of sleep deprivation. Sound like a reality T.V. show? Someone’s already made that joke.
Question for #owot crew: What would it take to make this a reality TV program?

If you happen to be one of those people who believe that @ signs are not for reference types in your bibtex database, you can follow all of the action on Twitter, where it is noted by #owot.
I’m looking forward very much to building something. Let’s go!
