For THATCamp Prime V, we tried out having a hackathon on a dataset. One suggested dataset was the Cooper-Hewitt data on github. I tried out putting it into an Omeka site and seeing what possibilities were there.

There's been some great talk lately about hacking in the humanities at THATCamps Prime (aka, CHNM) and Victoria. At CHNM, I proposed two directions for humanists talking about code. One direction was to get coders and hackers and humanists together to see what we could learn about how we read and understand code. The other was a hands-on 'lets start learning how to hack' session.
