DH is multiple. DH is part humanities computing which designs, develops, and/or utilizes computing technologies for research and analysis. DH is also a community interested in collaborative projects and sharing knowledge across disciplines. Still, DH goes beyond the instrumentality of technologies, by critically engaging with questions of knowledge formation, dissemination, and preservation.

As of December 2012, the database contains over 500 rows and randomly selects a quote each time the page is loaded. If you want to do something cool with the data, I am providing a download for the CSV I compiled here.
