-Coming off my recent post on <a href="http://www.jasonheppler.org/how-i-learned-code.html">How I Learned Code</a>, I've decided to write a series of blog posts that will introduce historians to the basics of Ruby that I will eventually publish as a free <a href="http://anthologize.org/">ebook</a>.  My hope is to write an accessible introduction to Ruby and demonstrate not only how to write small programs but also think about ways programming can help scholars in their everyday tasks.  Although I'm aiming this at historians, my hope is that anyone interested in humanist computing (or Ruby in general) will find this useful.  Watch here, follow me on <a href="http://www.twitter.com/jaheppler">Twitter</a>, or <a href="http://feeds.feedburner.com/JasonHeppler">subscribe</a> to catch updates as I produce them.

+If you visited [in the last twenty-four hours](http://jasonheppler.org/sopa.html), you would've seen that the site was, like many others, silenced to protest SOPA.
+
+![Protesting SOPA](http://jasonheppler.org/images/jh_sopa.png "Jason Heppler protest of SOPA")
+
+Not everyone agreed with the blackout strategy. Merlin Mann, someone I respect a lot for a variety of reasons and whose opinions I value, tweeted that he didn't see the point.
+
+![Merlin Mann on Twitter](http://jasonheppler.org/images/merlin_sopa.png "Merlin Mann on Twitter")
+
+I think I understand Merlin's position -- that, as a content creator on the web, it is silly to censor yourself to protest censorship. It's a fair criticism, but my own motivation was to make a point and raise awareness. Did I accomplish that? Maybe. I get nowhere near the sort of traffic that Merlin probably sees, but I know that in some of my circles -- online and off -- people noticed it. I reached a few people by my action, and for me, that's all I hoped to achieve. The stance taken by Reddit, Wikipedia, and others [made an impact](http://arstechnica.com/tech-policy/news/2012/01/pipa-support-collapses-with-13-new-opponents-in-senate.ars) and [stirred discussions](https://twitter.com/#!/search/%23stopsopa).
+
+The fight isn't over. We can all easily call today a victory, but will the energy carry over to next week? Next month? The next battle we have over this issue? Even if SOPA and PIPA are dropped from congressional consideration, the content companies who prefer zero copying will continue to fight for restrictions and line the pockets of congressional representatives. SOPA and PIPA are part of a history that's been going on for twenty years, beginning with media concerns over copying television or movies with VCRs or music with personal tape recorders. The Audio Home Recording Act of 1992 established precedents for infringement, primarily declaring that copying and remixing was fine unless someone was making perfect copies and reselling them. But media companies were [not content with the ruling](https://www.ted.com/talks/defend_our_freedom_to_share_or_why_sopa_is_a_bad_idea.html). We need to be ready for the next salvo.
+
+The strategy worked today, but it won't be effective in the long run. Blocking our content or plastering "STOP SOPA" on our Twitter avatars may make us feel like we're having an impact, but this only works for so long and in certain instances. We need to move on to more effective long-term strategies, and in that spirit I'd like to direct you to the Electronic Frontier Foundation (EFF). The EFF, a donor-supported nonprofit (full disclosure: I'm a member), is one of our most effective lobbyists in the campaign against SOPA/PIPA and similar legislation. Please, go [donate](https://supporters.eff.org/donate) or become a [member](https://supporters.eff.org/join).

+At THATCamp AHA, one of the sessions confronted the issue of training, tenure, and promotion in digital history. Attended by graduate students, tenured and non-tenured faculty, and librarians, the session discussed the problems of doing digital work while such labor was not recognized as rigourous scholarly production. Professional peer review of digital work is stagnant because evaluators are unable or unwilling to assess digital scholarship on its merits. In the spirit of THATCamp the session attendees adopted a "less yack, more hack" attitude and co-authored "[A Call to Redefine Historical Scholarship in the Digital Turn](https://docs.google.com/document/d/13D5HjjcnnAHoNaUIjwFHET83_r7kYtM0CPTYGhcMrjM/edit)." We are asking for endorsements and feedback before sending the letter to the AHA's Research Division in hopes that we can kickstart a conversation.
+
+As incoming American Historical Association president William Cronon [wrote](http://www.historians.org/perspectives/issues/2012/1201/The-Public-Practice-of-History-in-and-for-a-Digital-Age.cfm), we are at a point where we need to have "conversations about the impact of the digital revolution on the practice of history." Essential, if not central, to that conversation is training, tenure, and promotion. There are immense professional risks in engaging the digital medium for both junior scholars and graduate students. As Kathleen Fitzpatrick recently wrote, "until scholars really believe that publishing on the web is as valuable as publishing in print — and more importantly, until they believe that their institutions believe it, too — few will be willing to risk their careers on a new way of working, with the result that that new way of working will remain marginal and undervalued."<sup>1</sup>
+
+The profession of history finds itself at a crossroads. The AHA Annual Meeting had the highest number of digital history sessions to date, graduate programs are exploring ways to train students in the theories and methods of digital history, new avenues are opening for complex digital scholarship, and institutions (like my own) are hiring tenure-track faculty specializing in digital humanities. Yet there are no customs or standards to assess this new mode of scholarship. Digital scholars thus remain tied down to the 19th century model of historical scholarly production.
+
+We're asking the American Historical Association to begin paving the way and set guidelines for evaluating digital methods and training. Please read through "[A Call to Redefine Historical Scholarship in the Digital Turn](https://docs.google.com/document/d/13D5HjjcnnAHoNaUIjwFHET83_r7kYtM0CPTYGhcMrjM/edit)" and consider endorsing the effort.

+
+Over the past few months I took up the Paleo diet. Since then, a lot of people have asked me about it. Paleo isn't so much a diet as a lifestyle change that eliminates glutens, refined sugars, among other things. Paleo isn't all that new, popularized in the 1970s but stretches back further, and differs in some ways from other low carb and slow carb diets.
+
+Paleo is short for "paleolithic" and refers to the Paleolithic Era of human existence, a period stretching roughly from Homo sapiens to the invention of agriculture. The science behind Paleo argues that our bodies have not evolved to process the diets that dominate our lives today, including grains (wheat, rice, barley), legumes (beans, peanuts), and dairy. Our foods have changed a lot over the last 10-15,000 years -- but genetically, we're not much different from the human species that lived 100,000 years ago. We haven't had the time to adapt.
+
+I haven't been perfect in following it and really fell off the wagon over the holidays, but I've nearly gotten back on track. I immediately noticed changes when I started the lifestyle -- more energy, felt like I was thinking more clearly, sleeping better. Best of all, I lost a stunning amount of weight simply by changing the way I ate. Many people who start the lifestyle note similar effects, including numerous other health benefits.
+
+So, here's a few of the sources I read when I got started down the path.
+
+### Books
+
+* Robb Wolf, [The Paleo Solution: The Original Human Diet](http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/0982565844/ref=as_li_ss_tl?ie=UTF8&tag=jasohepp-20&linkCode=as2&camp=1789&creative=390957&creativeASIN=0982565844)
+
+### General
+
+* [Robb Wolf's Paleo FAQ](http://robbwolf.com/faq/)
+* [Mark Sisson's Primal Blueprint](http://www.marksdailyapple.com/primal-blueprint-101/#axzz1jPNkHhK1)
+* [Reddit's Paleo FAQ](http://www.reddit.com/help/faqs/paleo) and [/r/paleo](http://www.reddit.com/r/paleo)
+* [Paleo Hacks](http://paleohacks.com)
+
+### Blogs
+
+* [Every Day Paleo](http://everydaypaleo.com/)
+* [Nom Nom Paleo](http://nomnompaleo.com/)
+* [Paleo Plan](http://www.paleoplan.com/recipes/)

+> "We should not be committed to the existence of institutions, but to the ends those institutions were created to enable." -[Abby Rumsey](http://twitter.com/#!/dancohen/status/91216381663653888)
+
+What value do journals and books add versus digital scholarship? We invest value into these forms of scholarly presentation as though they carry value of their own. As Tom Scheinfeldt [tweeted relatively recently](https://twitter.com/#!/foundhistory/status/91253141584093186), the book and the article are like gold and silver. They carry no intrinsic value; print text is a form we grip to out of tradition and invest our own value into.
+
+How might we define scholarly communication?
+
+1. idea(s) and formulation
+2. analysis and narrative
+3. dissemination
+4. reuse and citation
+
+What forms can and do scholarly communication take?
+
+1. narrative (traditionally)
+2. analysis (traditionally)
+3. data visualization (spatial, text, and so on)
+4. data (and databases)
+5. markup as interpretation (as Jerome McGann has argued [elsewhere](http://digitalhumanities.org/companion/view?docId=blackwell/9781405103213/9781405103213.xml&chunk.id=ss1-3-4))
+
+The web offers new forms of communication and dissemination, sometimes (often?) superior to the printed word, but we have yet to fully grasp it. [Look at *William and Mary Quarterly*](http://oieahc.wm.edu/wmq/index.cfm) for example. They have a section on their site that contains additions for digital work (they call "Web Supplement") that accompanies the print. Contrast this with the born-digital article by Edward Ayers and William Thomas [*The Difference Slavery Made*](http://www2.vcdh.virginia.edu/AHR/) based off the [Valley of the Shadow](http://valley.lib.virginia.edu/) digital history project. These two examples illustrate where we've gone in the last ten years with digital scholarship &#8212; away from long form narrative on the web, and a turn to digital work to accompany traditional print. Some journals are pioneering new forms, like the digital-only [Southern Spaces](http://www.southernspaces.org/), but historians need to be aggressive in getting more journals in their fields to start thinking hard about how to handle digital scholarly production.
+
+I'm not saying I'm in agreement with Jeff Gomez who argues that [print is dead](http://www.amazon.com/Print-Dead-Books-our-Digital/dp/0230527167) (although keep in mind some of the [major shifts in publishing](http://www.brainpickings.org/index.php/2011/02/02/merchants-of-culture-future-of-publishing/) that occurred just last year that suggest digital publication is becoming more and more a norm). But I do think there is room for digital to be the only version of a text, narrative, or analysis.
