    Sounds like a great group of lectures. Any chance that they will be
    recorded and made available over the WWW as streaming video?

    One of the most pressing needs of humanists is to overcome the requirement
    for travel to enjoy the benefit of such events. I think computing humanists
    should take the lead in demonstrating a solution to that particular
    problem. Not a deep theoretical problem concerning the use of computers in
    the humanities but not every worthy problem has that status.

    Hope you are having a great day!
