I am the Curator of The Magnes Collection of Jewish Art and Life and a Lecturer in the Department of Music at UC Berkeley. My technology-related work includes: establishing the Jewish Digital Narratives platform, the integrated archives-library-museum database and the Drupal website at The Magnes; using Wordpress and social media in my teaching; and mentoring academic colleagues in the digital humanities. I like text mining, metadata, linked open data and all the rest, but studying and teaching with and about primary sources is were it all begins.
