My name is Dot Porter. During the day, I’m the Curator, Digital Research Services, in the Schoenberg Institute for Manuscript Studies at the University of Pennsylvania. At night, I mess around with code. This site is an experiment. It is a place where I will play with toys and see what I can do with them. The intention is to see what I can do, to learn new things, and to have a bit of fun. I hope that the site will be changing constantly as I figure out new approaches and play with new tools. However this blog will always be here, a place where I can document my work and play. The site’s tagline, “development in production”, expresses what I aim to do with this site: to take the thinking and work behind my projects and present them as part of the project. As the site is an experimental development space, I can make no guarantees as to the production value of the work presented here.
