This chapter focuses on Digital Humanities Now, a new web publication resulting from the author’s attempt to combine the activities of several hundred digital humanities scholars with TwitterTim.es (a service that creates a real-time publication consisting of articles highlighted by people you follow on Twitter). DHN aggregates thousands of tweets and the hundreds of articles and projects those tweets point to and boils them down to the most-discussed items, with commentary from Twitter. Based on the early returns, the algorithms have done fairly well, putting on the front page articles on grading in a digital age and bringing high-speed networking to liberal arts colleges, Google’s law archive search, and a talk on how to deal with streams of content given limited attention.
