End of the semester

Which means I can return to the blog. Why so long without a post? The usual suspects: teaching three courses (note-to-self: teaching a course requiring three new class preps per week for an entire semester gets really old, even if it’s the Enlightenment); revising a think-piece book chapter on what we mean when we use the term “strategy”; revising my chapter on siege capitulations and otherwise editing the other chapters in the World of the Siege collection; thinking about the battle book; assistant chairing and scheduling; designing and overseeing the creation of a Digital History Lab; splitting my Devonthink databases into separate course databases and setting up my Devonthink To Go databases on the iPad/iPhone; downloading a ton of Google Books PDFs; and starting preps for a new Intro to Digital History course this fall.

But motivated by all the digital tips and tricks I’m learning, I’ll try to make more frequent posts for the blog over the summer. That will include posting a few examples of the new digital toys.

So stay tuned…
