Digital Methods Initiative (DMI)

Founded in 2007 but in development since the later 1990s, DMI is a collaborative project out of the University of Amsterdam. DMI is a "contribution to doing research into the 'natively digital'". The goals of the project are twofold: firstly, the projects aims to interrogate virtual methods in order to evaluate the differences this new media makes and, secondly, the project aims to create a platform here display the tools and sources that can be used in digital research. DMI provides practical (like how-to's) and critical (outlooks and critiques) resources allied with specific tools to aid scholars in using and evaluating these web-based programs.
