Hi Rufus, list,

I started tweeting about the event over the weekend, and Sam Moore put the
announce up on the Humanist mailing list this morning. Here, for anyone
else reading this is the raw announcement:


Calling all those with an interest in bringing the humanities online:

The Open Knowledge Foundation's Open Literature project is one dedicated
sprint away from being ready to go online. This open service will offer
anyone the opportunity to upload, analyse, present and annotate
public-domain texts; it builds on the functionality of the OKF's recent <a
">Open Shakespeare</a> and <a
href="http://textusproject.org/">Textus</a> Projects
to become a tool of use to a great range of scholars in the humanities.

   - *When*: 25th January 2014, 11am – 6pm (if 11am is too early for you
   it’s OK to join later!)

   - *Where*: Centre for Creative Collaboration, 16 Acton Street, London,
   WC1X 9NG

   - *Who*: Anyone interested in literature, philosophy and taking these

   - *Signup*:

   - *Mailing list*: For updates, please join the Open Humanities mailing
