Following this week’s public beta release of Omeka 0.9.0, we interview the Center for History and New Media‘s managing director Tom Scheinfeldt, and Director of Public Projects, Sharon Leon. Omeka is the collection publishing system that CHNM has been developed and designed for cultural institutions, enthusiasts, and educators. The second half of the episode takes you through the process of downloading and installing Omeka on your server.
At the start of this episode we mention the inaugural THATCamp that THATPodcast is co-sponsoring. It’s a barcamp-style digital humanities unconference that we’re hosting here at George Mason University. If you’re interested in.. THAT.. visit the THATCamp website. We’re happy to have reached over 100 subscribers after our first episode, and look forward to each monthly episode. Thanks for your support!

Our inaugural episode of The Humanities and Technology Podcast explores WordPress, the popular open source blogging platform. We interview Matt Mullenweg, the founder of WordPress, and demonstrate how to install the ScholarPress Courseware course management plugin used to set up a course website and blog.
We’re experimenting with the possibilities of using video to its fullest potential; with this episode is only the beginning. It will be particularly useful in the presentation portion of the podcast, where we explore a new technology or tool for digital humanists. You can choose to subscribe to either the video or audio podcasts, or download the video and/or audio file without subscribing. We’ll be returning with a new episode next month, following a similar format of interview/screencast presentation. See you then.
