Against all ODDS: Hacking and the TEI

Submitted by Sarah Stanley on Wed, 10/08/2014 - 20:06

This is my reflection for Lab 1 of #f14tmn.

I find it strangely appropriate that we completed our TEI practicum after a class discussion about hacking in the digital humanities.

Now, I don't think I would have made this connection before doing this lab. Before, TEI was... just a way to mark up documents. You put tags around things, you made sure your encoding practices reflected your project's goals, you published. Pretty simple once you get used to it, really. And of course, the small assignment for class should be even simpler.
