    • "Are You A Digital Humanist?"The Conversation Online
    • The WIDE-EMU Unconference soughtto extend the scholarly communicationof Computers and Writing in a lessstructured venue.We used the opportunity it provided toseek feedback about what the DigitalRhetoric and Writing community feltwas missing in digital publication anddigital community spaces.
    • "When you say what books doyou want to read and writeUnconference and in what format, Im really interested in ebooks that are more than just a pdf." "As a digital scholar for whom interactivity forms part of the argument, and with some ideas I have for books right now, theres not really any place to design something in a longer framework."
    • Unconference "There was a time in the Rhet-Comp blogging community when there were a few scholarship carnivals, but thats kind of gone away, and it feels like one of the lacks right now. Youd have a list of maybe 30 entries that are taking up various crumbs from the article and trying to respond and engage — I really miss it; I found it really enriching."
