  • Hasta la vista, DALL-E.

    The Terminator 2: Judgment Day has been on my mind a lot lately for two reasons.  One, I am planning my annual post-semester winter-holiday decorating, gingerbread baking movie watch-list. Two, SkyNet’s sentience and destruction of humanity is feeling more and more real these days. Well, perhaps not SkyNet exactly. But it certainly seems like technology…

  • Visualizing Data from The Money Chair

    The Money Chair I loved to tip-toe into my grandfather’s den and sit in the world’s most opulent seat- The Money Chair. Overstuffed and a deep green, this chair earned such an esteemed nickname not because of its hue but because of the earthy smell of leather.  “You smell that? That’s the smell of money!”…

  • Dinosaurs eat data, humanists inherit the Earth

    Apparently dinosaurs, data, and the digital is a thing around here, dear readers. If that is not your jam, the helicopter is still running. You can hop off this island right now.  But for the rest of you?  Hop in, buckle up, and welcome to Cassie’s Park.  From “A-ha” to “Aaaaahhhhhhh!” My foray into digital…

  • Place, Time, Maps

    Made of Stars The stars and city lights melted together. At the top of the stairs, the lights looked like an urban model of spacetime, with the million twinkling spots bending and warping with the gravitational pull of life. The soft lights bent, rolled, and traveled across the contours of hillsides, valleys, and canyons that…

  • Oh, the Spaces You’ll Go!

    Thomas is my Co-Pilot At 12pm on a hot August day I took my driving test, parallel parked like a champ, and earned my California Driver License. At 2pm that same day, my grandfather gifted me a Thomas Guide to San Diego county.  For much longer than I care to admit, I flipped through the…

  • How I Met Your MU/TH/UR: Playing with text

    MU/TH/UR Issues Alien is my favorite movie. Ridley Scott’s 1979 masterpiece of cinema hooked me immediately when I first watched it at maybe 10-years-old. The suspense! The action! The badassery! The acid! It had everything a kid could want, and then some. But I came to appreciate it in new ways as both my view-count…

  • Around the World in 80 CTRL+Fs

    Footnotes I have strong opinions about footnotes. I do not care if you judge my nerdiness, but I love a footnote. I especially love a footnote in a monograph.  Endnotes are…fine, but too much work. When I come across an especially interesting detail or am reading an author prone to including banter or anecdotes, I…

  • Data-saurus

    Cabaz-ssic Park I’m not sure what was bigger- the size of my eyes or the decibel reading of my eight-year-old squeal.  It shimmered in the distance. The oasis in the desert. We were almost there. My grandfather hardly pulled off the road when I tumbled across the back-bench seat of his hulking 1980-something GMC crew…

  • Digital History, medium

    Them’s fightin’ words Want to see academics get into a verbal brawl?  Ask a group of humanists in your most affected naivete Elle Woods voices, “So, like, what is the definition of digital humanities?”. And to really get them going, follow up with: via GIPHY Defining digital humanities, including digital history, is notoriously divisive. So…
