Digital Humanities Introduction
Digital Humanities: The humanities in and for a digital age
Innovation and the HumanitiesA lot of people in our industry haven't had very diverse experiences. So they don't have enough dots to connect, and they end up with very linear solutions without a broad perspective on the problem. The broader one's understanding of the human experience, the better design we will have. Steve Jobs in Wired magazine February, 1996
