Five reasons why researchers should learn to love the command line

Since 2018, their team had sequenced the DNA of some 1,300 silver fox (Vulpes vulpes) specimens, and the lab head wanted to know precisely how many bases it had collected, and how well those bases aligned to the reference genome. Johnson, a bioinformatician at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign, had the necessary data. But they were scattered across her hard drive. The most obvious solution was also the most painful: to open each file, find the required information, close and repeat — 1,300 times.

So Johnson took another tack, using the command line. Prebuilt into macOS and Unix systems, and available on Windows through such tools as the free ‘Windows Subsystem for Linux’ and MobaXterm, the command line (also called the shell) is a powerful text-based interface in which users issue terse instructions to create, find, sort and manipulate files, all without using the mouse.

Historical Currency Converter

What was the worth of 1 billion German mark in 1923 or 1000 Polish zloty in 1980? Was an annual wage of 25 pounds per year in 1780 much compared to the wage rates at the time? To answer these questions the Historical Currency Converter uses a short-cut, by comparing the worth of various sums in various currencies in their purchasing power of Swedish consumer goods and the pay of workers in Sweden. The comparison is based on data gathered within the project Historical monetary and financial statistics for Sweden.

Fellini and Marxist capitalism “Sexual identity is intrinsically unattainable,” says Bataille; however, according to Finnis[1] , it is not so much sexual identity that is intrinsically unattainable, but rather the collapse, and thus the fatal flaw, of sexual identity. Wilson[2] suggests that the works of Fellini are empowering.

However, the primary theme of Geoffrey’s[3] analysis of the constructivist paradigm of discourse is a mythopoetical whole. The main theme of the works of Smith is the role of the writer as poet. If one examines textual neocapitalist theory, one is faced with a choice: either accept Marxist capitalism or conclude that sexuality, perhaps paradoxically, has significance. Sepln.

Review: Maps for Time Travelers - Geography Realm

As advertised, it is a cogent survey of the geospatial technological advances over the last few decades which have enabled today’s archaeologists to map — that is, create digital versions of — the ancient world. But it is also an engaging introduction, for the general reader, to the very nature of archaeological research: ‘We are the only creatures on the planet, as far as we know, who can imagine what the world was like before we were born.’ The author is a professor of anthropology whose area of expertise is the archaeology of the Pacific islands in the era before contact with the outside world.

Cartografiando las Humanidades Digitales – Humanidades Digitales

Y como creo que esto no debería ser así, el año pasado me di a la tarea de cartografiar el mundo visible de las Humanidades Digitales para re-abrir la vieja pregunta de qué son las Humanidades Digitales desde la perspectiva de quiénes las están haciendo, o mejor dicho, de quiénes creemos que las estamos haciendo.

Once your business has started collecting and combining all kinds of data, the next elusive step is to extract value from it. Your data may hold tremendous amounts of potential value, but not an ounce of value can be created unless insights are uncovered and translated into actions or business outcomes. During a 2009 interview, Google’s Chief Economist Dr.

Hal R.Varian stated, "The ability to take data—to be able to understand it, to process it, to extract value from it, to visualize it, to communicate it—that’s going to be a hugely important skill in the next decades. " Writing History in the Digital Age. How are electronic databases and text-analysis tools changing how historians research and write about the past? Are we finding more “needles in the haystack” that we otherwise might not have noticed? Ansley Erickson launches this section with “Historical Research and the Problem of Categories: Reflections on 10,000 Digital Note Cards,” which richly illustrates how using a relational database package reshaped her dissertation source-work and writing process and led her to reflect on broader questions of historical categorization. Reflecting on their long-term collaboration, Kathryn Kish Sklar and Thomas Dublin describe the transformation of their intellectual goals, technology, funding, and global audience, in “Creating Meaning in a Sea of Information: The Women and Social Movements Web Sites.”

Historical Research and the Problem of Categories: Reflections on 10,000 Digital Note Cards Once while taking a break at an archive, I stood at the snack machine alongside a senior historian. New Book: History in the Age of Abundance? How the Web is Transforming Historical Research. There’s no such thing as a “tech person” in the age of AI. When I was an undergrad at MIT, and later an engineer in Silicon Valley, I always felt like a bit of a black sheep because of my perpetual desire to straddle technology and the humanities. That went against the culture of both worlds, indicative of a broader impulse globally to separate the two. In hindsight, this separation hasn’t served us so well.

As Henry Kissinger wrote in the June 2018 issue of the Atlantic: “The Enlightenment started with essentially philosophical insights spread by a new technology. Our period is moving in the opposite direction. Hemerotecas digitales: ¿cómo descargar periódicos antiguos en PDF? Palladio. Field Notes: Building Data Dictionaries – Haystacks. The scariest ghost stories I know take place when the history of data — how it’s collected, how it’s used, and what it’s meant to represent — becomes an oral history, passed down as campfire stories from one generation of analysts to another like a spooky game of telephone. These stories include eerie phrases like “I’m not sure where that comes from”, “I think that broke a few years ago and I’m not sure if it was fixed”, and the ever-ominous “the guy who did that left”.

When hearing these stories, one can imagine that a written history of the data has never existed — or if it has, it’s overgrown with ivy and tech-debt in an isolated statuary, never to be used again. The best defense I’ve found against relying on an oral history is creating a written one. The History BA since the Great Recession. Sapping Attention. Manifeste des Digital humanities – THATCamp Paris. Contexte Nous, acteurs ou observateurs des digital humanities (humanités numériques) nous sommes réunis à Paris lors du THATCamp des 18 et 19 mai 2010. Au cours de ces deux journées, nous avons discuté, échangé, réfléchi ensemble à ce que sont les digital humanities et tenté d’imaginer et d’inventer ce qu’elles pourraient devenir. À l’issue de ces deux jours qui ne sont qu’une étape, nous proposons aux communautés de recherche et à tous ceux qui participent à la création, à l’édition, à la valorisation ou à la conservation des savoirs un manifeste des digital humanities.
