How do you Define DH?

I tend to lean towards an open definition of digital humanities. If you are making or using digital tools to study, archive, or create “something” in the humanities, you are a digital humanist! I thoroughly expect the nuances of DH theory, tools, and methods to change and evolve as technology and culture changes. The happy side-effect of the varied means and modes of technological change in DH practice allows many of us to follow the tone and tenor of cultural production more closely.
