My screen time is about 6 to 10 hours a day (depending on work load and some other factors) so for me it is really important that media I use in the internet is accessible and I can learn what is needed from it so digital humanities is a big part of my life which other wise would be me trying to find books in the library instead of googling it Progress, progress cannot be prevented once begun there is no end in sight every 6 years the knowledge on Earth doubles Resources of the world are finite, so is it important to digitize our knowledge and materials? Or rather a sign of moving away from the digital age? Is it a development to support people or to solve a particular problem?
Problem -> Idea -> Set up these with premises -> test -> test successfully -> thesis correct -> Solution Problem -> test Failed -> thesis wrong -> New thesis -> more testing -> untill thesis is correct and problem solved So is digitization actually something we consider to be a solution to a particular problem? Or does it cause us more problems because we miss use it? -> everything is teaching material you can learn something from everything Digitalisierung pros -> Globalisation -> "the world shrinks" -> greater accessibility for everyone -> text that get readed out loud -> books getting ebooks to make the Font bigger -> making texts and videos fun to watch Makes learning accessible for people who have problems with see or hearing or have dyslexia or adhd or autism or struggle with agoraphobia and depression
Problems: are we losing touch with ourselfs getting digital being "glass humans" and are we starting to lose our critic and questinoning self and the deepness when transfering everything into computers?
What can i do the next 24 hours to get closer to an answer of the first question? : looking for problems in each of the subject areas to check for probelms and weaknesses that the interdisziplinary area digital humanities covers and can help with
