Today Stéfan and I resumed our analytical sessions. We concentrated on using RezoViz with Humanist. RezoViz is a network analysis tool that Stéfan and implemented. He has written a post on RezoViz here.
We found that interpretatively it made sense to start with a low number for the "max people" and to build up seeing who is added. At about 50 for all years I started editing the list to get rid of the situations where Geoff Rockwell was closely linked to Geoffrey Rockwell.
Using this reminded me of people important to humanities computing in previous decades who have disappeared like Elaine Brennan who edited Humanist for a while with Allen Renear.
We decided in the end not to put the network anaysis of humanist into the example chapter on humanist. We want to keep the example chapters simple and short. Instead we are going to try it on Game Studies to see if that would make an interesting example.
