In a first of its kind conference, 12 scholars, archivists, librarians and students were gathered to Fairfax, Virginia to create- in one week- a tool for use in contemporary humanity studies. The assembled team had a wide range of backgrounds and skill sets. Some were celebrated open source developers working towards their PhDs. Some were archivists and librarians. There were University professors alongside a recent college graduate. Together, they collaborated to fix a need the team perceived in the world of the humanities. Sponsored by the National Endownment for the Humanities, and hosted by the Center for History and New Media at George Mason University, the team accomplished its mission and built one tool in one week. This is their story.
