Who are we ?
We are Hou Ieong Ho and Shih-Pei Chen, two computer scientists interested in helping humanists to take full advantage of information technologies.

This website is an effort born out of the Digital Humanities 2.0 Workshop @ Harvard University, and is inspired by Dennis Tenen, our lecturer who tried to teach the whole class to build their own timeline by following this tutorial by Brian Croxall.
