             Subject: Open Content in Humanities

    The academic community seems to be full of projects and ideas for opening
    up academic content with things like the Open Access Initiative
    <http://www.soros.org/openaccess/>, the Open Knowledge Initiative
    <http://web.mit.edu/oki/>, MIT's Open Courseware <http://ocw.mit.edu/>, the
    Open Textbook Project <http://otp.inlimine.org/>, and the PLoS
    But Humanities seem to be underrepresented in most of these projects. I'm
    sure there's a lot of projects going on to open humanistic content but is
    there something that has really taken off already?
