We Like Scholars
Todd Park, U.S. Chief Technology Officer, discusses national health data and the potential it offers when it becomes known through the application of technology.
Neatline allows scholars, students, and curators to tell stories with maps and timelines. As a suite of add-on tools for Omeka, it opens new possibilities for hand-crafted, interactive spatial and temporal interpretation. Explore the tool with this example exhibit “My Dear Little Nelly”: Hotchkiss Maps the Battle of Fredericksburg for his Child.
Neatline was developed by the Scholar’s Lab of the University of Virginia Library.
Omeka is a free, flexible, and open source web-publishing platform for the display of library, museum, archives, and scholarly collections and exhibitions. Its “five-minute setup” makes launching an online exhibition as easy as launching a blog.

In his lab, Martin Hanczyc makes “protocells,” experimental blobs of chemicals that behave like living cells. His work demonstrates how life might have first occurred on Earth … and perhaps elsewhere too. Martin Hanczyc explores the path between living and nonliving systems, using chemical droplets to study behavior of the earliest cells.
