Welcome to the Maiden Voyage of Packets: Musings on Information Exchange, Historical, Digital, and Otherwise. Here you will find posts on a range of issues, including: history, database design, digital history/digital humanities, and web/graphical design. I will do my best to post regularly (read: twice a month), but I am currently writing my dissertation, so if there is a long gap . . . that’s the reason. I’ve been planning this blog for months, so come on board and we’ll get underway.
