I am at the Digital Humanities 2011 conference this week and will be posting information relevant to the DML. First session I am in today is about virtual cities and digital histories. So far interesting projects include Main Street Carolina, T-RACES, and GeoScribe from Hypercities (a project that we had a speaker from at the BGC this spring).
Perhaps most relevant to BGC work is Tales of Thing which allowed people to scan objects using RFID and QR tags and add stories and information onto things. Objects were in an Oxfam store (donations like Goodwill) where people could listen to the recorded audio history of the object via scanning with a smartphone.
