        Subject: what makes the digital humanities interesting?

This is a question directed to those who are in or associated with the 
digital humanities primarily in a technical role, especially 
those with a broad range of experiences in computing of all sorts. What 
in particular makes the digital humanities interesting? Have you 
observed any characteristics that seem unique to activities in the 
intersection of computing and the humanities? Are there particular kinds 
of challenges you don't tend to meet elsewhere? From a technical 
perspective how would you characterise these activities? What 
does humanities scholarship as it currently is have to offer computing?
