Hi all,
I would like to announce the official launch today of the Humanities 
Networked Infrastructure (HuNI <https://huni.net.au>) which you can find 
at https://huni.net.au

*HuNI*(Humanities Networked Infrastructure) combines data from many 
Australian cultural websites into the biggest humanities and creative 
arts database ever assembled in Australia. HuNI data covers all 
disciplines and brings together information about the people, works, 
events, organisations and places that make up the country's rich 
cultural landscape.

It presents data as an interactive network graph - have a quick squiz 
here <https://huni.net.au/#/record/HuNI***Collection***22> and start 
clicking on the icons in the graph.

It has been three years in the making and we are very proud to launch it 
and invite the public to use it.  To get things started we have a 
competition <http://www.deakin.edu.au/research/src/cmii/huni.php> 
running until November 28 for the best "6 degrees of separation" 
starting from the Edna Everage record 

The challenge is to start from Edna Everage and create 6 links 
journeying through the HuNI data.

Details are here: http://www.deakin.edu.au/research/src/cmii/huni.php 
The most interesting journey through the HuNI data wins.

For those of you technically inclined, HuNI has an API which is 
described here: https://bitbucket.org/huniteam/documentation/wiki/API

The more links are created, the more interesting and valuable the HuNI 
data becomes to everyone.

Happy linking!

OK Board Member and HuNI Semantic Lead
