Last Sunday in Montreal, I was part of the panel Digital Anthropology: Projects and Projections organized by Mike and Kim Fortun from Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute. This post will highlight the groundbreaking projects created by this diverse group of anthropologists. There is a synergy in what is being done, and I want to gather it together in one place online. I’m going to provide a list of people and projects first, and then provide a bit of commentary on the panel itself. Finally, I’ll go over each project, and the accompanying talk, in depth. I know there are other great online projects out there, so please feel free to highlight them in the comments.

We’re excited to announce development of a new tool to automate the selection of websites for archiving: the Twittervane. At the moment, our selection process is manual, dependent upon internal subject specialists or external experts to contact us and nominate websites for archiving in the UK Web Archive. We benefit from their expertise and wouldn’t be without it, but we recognise that this manual selection process can sometimes be time consuming for frequent selectors. It’s also inevitably subjective, reflecting the interests of a relatively small number of selectors. Automated selection is an efficient and under-utilised alternative, but up until now it has been difficult to see how an automated approach could clearly identify the most popular and widely relevant websites.
