Open Literature Bulletin: 2011-07-22
This bulletin was originally sent as an email to the members of the open-literature list. To join it, visit: lists.okfn.org
A Special announcement
- http://openliterature.net now carries minutes of meetings, and copies of these mails under http://openliterature.net/category/minutes
- http://wiki.openliterature.net now includes an archive of promotional material, and all the previous contents of the Open Shakespeare wiki
- H G Wells society sent us an email on Monday saying that they are very interested by http://annotateit.org and that they will discuss using the anotator on their online editions of his works.
- Open Shakespeare’s new words of the day this week: Vizard, Xantippe, Yoke, and Zany: all on http://openshakespeare.org/word – which now has one entry for every letter of the alphabet
- In September, Open Shakespeare will carry a series of guest blog posts on the topic ‘Shakespeare and the Internet’: I have seven confirmed contributors from many different walks of life (actors, academics, bloggers) and look forward to organising others, especially those with a computer science background (if that’s you, let me know).
A few ideas on how to get involved:
- Contribute a blog post on ‘Shakespeare and the Internet’: anything of between 500 and 1000 words in length that fits into this category will be very welcome. Just drop me a mail with any questions.
- Book a place at Text Camp 2011, or suggest an activity
- Write a WOTD article (some ideas: elephant, quail, garter)
- Annotate a Shakespeare play: we’re getting near 700 individual comments now!
