Tools and Services: Survey, Analysis, Registry, SandBox, Skunkworks, Demonstrators


Description

Many table groups in the "Future Directions" exercise at workshop 1 called out that Bamboo should help to survey and analyze existing tools and services for the digital humanities, identifying those areas in which there are gaps and opportunities in which greater collective investment makes sense.  At the same time, a number of groups argued that Bamboo should create a "skunk works" for the demonstration and experimentation with existing and new tools, repositories, and services.
