Dear Claire and all,

I hope it doesn't surprise you if I say that I found lots on methodologies and analysis in the posters at DH2009, and I was rather upset to see them fragmented throughout the conference and relegated to the coffee breaks when people are busy doing what you go to conferences for: socialising.

I think posters in the digital humanities community have become more and more important, and usually innovative and thoroughly planned, while papers - except for particularly inspiring talks and established branches of the DH archipelagos - claim to aim high but can indeed let down whom is longing for novelty beyond buzz words.

Don't get me wrong: I expect a lot from this community...may be too much?
