Creating a DH Community Site (DHFL or FLDH) for Florida

At present we have no platform/space, outside of THATCampFL, for sharing ideas and exploring/generating research and teaching collaborations among Florida-based DHers. I’m interested in exploring possibilities for building a DH community site that would address this and perhaps lead to spinoff projects. It could be modeled after, which was launched last summer, and could be built using CUNY’s Commons in a Box. We will need to think about how to make this site meaningful and sustainable. This past year I worked with our CAH tech team to install/launch UCF’s DH Academic Commons, and used it in my classes, but have not figured out how best to generate interest/activity among my colleagues with a shared interest in DH.
