digital collaboration

It has recently been launched a blog on digital collaboration, particularly focussing on how multidisciplinary work can be made possible through increased collaboration and cooperation between the various disciplinary/professional groups that are involved in the creation of digital libraries, repositories and digitised cultural institutions.  One of the first hurdles to be overcome is to ensure that we all share the same understandings of what the various groups mean when they use certain terms: we need to speak the same language, or at the very least, ‘translate’ from one disciplinary ‘language game’ (as Wittgenstein might have put it) to another.
