Dear wise members of the Humanist list,

In negotiating the opening of an annotated corpus which has been an important source of income to its owners thus far, we are in need for alternative business models, or even better, examples of such successful transitions of language or other resources.

Could donations, advertising or premium services really work as an alternative?

Many thanks,
Sinai

Global Outlook::Digital Humanities (GO::DH) requires volunteers to help
maintain its Web presence (http://www.globaloutlookdh.org/). Volunteers
will be tasked with keeping the content of the site updated, as well as
performing certain administrative tasks on the content management system.

Some proficiency with Wordpress is required. Commitment varies depending on
what each individual can reasonably offer.

GO::DH is a Special Interest Group (SIG) of the Alliance of Digital
Humanities Organisations  http://digitalhumanities.org/  (ADHO). The
purpose of GO::DH is to help break down barriers that hinder communication
and collaboration
 http://dpod.kakelbont.ca/2012/11/02/in-a-rich-mans-world-global-dh/  among
researchers and students of the Digital Arts, Humanities, and Cultural
Heritage sectors in high, mid, and low income economies.
Interested parties are encouraged to get in touch with James O'Sullivan (
josullivan at psu.edu).

Best regards,
James
