Hi I'm Seth. I work on systems to manage data sets for museums, archives and natural history projects. We're using Neo4j for a new platform to foster the preservation and dissemination of digital humanities research data. Graphs are good for that :-)
Welcome to the forum Seth. No idea what Whirl-i-Gig means but it sure makes museums sound hip !
Hi Seth, there is quite some activity in the digital humanities as you can see here:
Also Brian Underwood once built a quick starter for importing the british museum dataset
Hi Seth -- sounds awesome! I'm also out of NY (working w/ Neo4j on some knowledge mapping projects in healthcare / digital devices, which graphs have been pretty good for too).
