New Version of Digital Mishnah Demo

By | 2013-02-25T14:49:03+00:00 Mon, Feb 25, 2013|Faculty Fellows, Fellows, News, Research|

We have released a new version of the demo. Much of the change is in styling and branding, but there are new texts added, some new views, and a new naming convention. New texts. Gradually, I am replacing the sample files with just Bava Metsi’a Ch. 2 with transcriptions covering all of tractate Neziqin (the

Answering the Mail: Digital Mishnah Project Update

By | 2017-02-05T21:14:21+00:00 Thu, Nov 15, 2012|Faculty Fellows, Fellows|

I had promised to respond to comments on the Digital Mishnah demo, so, at long last, here goes. Request for greater highlighting of collation options (Tim Finney). In fact, CollateX has several alignment methods built into libraries that can be utilized. This is outside of what I feel comfortable talking about (I don’t really read

Drowning in Texts

By | 2017-02-05T21:14:24+00:00 Wed, Oct 24, 2012|Faculty Fellows, Fellows|

The comments on the Digital Mishnah demo deserve a full response (although the short response is: thank you and, in almost all cases, I agree). However, for this post I want to report on progress in getting and identifying texts for the extended demo. We have made the decision to build out from the sample

Digital Mishnah: Live Demo

By | 2017-02-05T21:14:26+00:00 Tue, Sep 4, 2012|Faculty Fellows, Fellows|

I am pleased to say that with a lot of work on a lot of people’s part, there is now a live demo of the Digital Mishnah Project. The demo is just that: a demonstration of possible functionalities.This post will outline some of the features that were always meant to be temporary and some new

Digital Mishnah: Summer Update

By | 2016-04-25T16:49:45+00:00 Tue, Jul 24, 2012|Faculty Fellows, Fellows|

In addition to getting the demo ready to go live–it’s ready to go!–this summer’s agenda has been to add texts and add reference material. We now have two sets of reference data ready to implement. The heavy lifting for this was done by Atara Siegel, an undergraduate at Stern College, who worked for me for

Almost Ready for Prime Time

By | 2017-02-05T21:14:31+00:00 Fri, May 25, 2012|Faculty Fellows, Fellows|

We now have two versions of a demos up and ready to run. Both allow a user to pull data from the witness files, containing manuscript transcriptions, select texts to compare, run the texts through a version of CollateX, then present the results as an alignment table (a “synopsis” in or “partitur” in some text-critical

The Site I’ve now updated the “Examples of Work” page on digitalmishnah.org to include viewable samples. Thanks to Kirsten Keister for setting up the light box format to view the samples. The examples include two samples of work that processes more than one text (collation, synopsis) and a number of examples of manuscripts. The Project

Progress, real but in small steps

By | 2017-02-05T21:14:42+00:00 Mon, Mar 12, 2012|Faculty Fellows|

I had been holding out for my next post for a new Digital Mishnah website, courtesy of MITH, and a new collation demo hosted on it, but, that will be for my next post, deo volente. Since my last confession, I have: Submitted a paper that details methods and progress to date. It’s for a

Thinking about the End Product

By | 2017-02-05T21:14:51+00:00 Thu, Jan 26, 2012|Faculty Fellows, Fellows|

Since my last post, I have been working on a grant application. This has afforded the opportunity of some stock taking. I’ve also had some very helpful conversations with scholars in the field: Juan Garcés and Matt Munson in Hebrew Biblical Studies, Tim Finney in New Testament and Desmond Schmidt in textual computing and classics.

New Output

By | 2017-02-05T21:14:55+00:00 Tue, Jan 3, 2012|Faculty Fellows, Research|

Only spammers seem to be noticing this blog, but for web-trolling software that might be interested in digital humanities and philology I thought I might add that I have updated the sample output from Collatex. collatex-table-apparatus.html shows output from user-specified witnesses in the form of (1) an alignment table based on user-specified order, (2) an
