Some reminders and information as we approach THATCamp CHNM:
- Campers have been proposing and commenting on some rather astonishingly awesome sessions — "The Politics of Data," "Building a Better Backchannel," an independent "UnPress" for academic publishing, paper prototyping "nifty visual interfaces," and diversity and accessibility in digital humanities, just for example. Check them out for yourself and add your comments at chnm2011.thatcamp.org. Propose your own session idea before Saturday, 6/4 by logging in at chnm2011.thatcamp.org/wp-login.php and clicking Posts –> Add New. See thatcamp.org/proposals for guidance. While you're logged in, you might update your profile so that we can learn about you on the Campers page at chnm2011.thatcamp.org/campers.
- There's a new workshop being offered on Friday, 6/3: Using Wikis as Courseware and Exhibition Development Tools, generously offered by Kimon Keramidas. Do be sure to read the workshop descriptions at chnm2011.thatcamp.org/bootcamp carefully: some workshop instructors ask that participants come with certain skills, software, or accounts. Workshop seating will be first come, first served.
- Make your reservations at the Residence Inn Fair Lakes by May 30th in order to receive the conference rate of $85. All travel information is at chnm2011.thatcamp.org/travel — we've added a map and further details about busses, shuttles, and parking.
- Sadly (very sadly), we can guarantee neither ovens nor refrigerators to participants in the Sunday afternoon bakeoff. However, you may bring your baked goods at any time and we will find a cool, dry, out-of-the-way spot for them until Sunday afternoon; certain kindly, self-disciplined CHNM employees might be convinced to give said goods safe fridge room at home till Sunday. The bakeoff judging will be crowdsourced, and we'll make up some rules and procedures for it eventually. Probably Sunday morning. (It's really THATCamps Virginia and Great Lakes who are to blame for this.)
