    Abstract:
    Curatorial note from Digital Pedagogy in the Humanities: Thought Vectors in Concept Space, a course offered at Virginia Commonwealth University, follows the model of Domain of One’s Own, an initiative based on the idea that every learner should have a domain on the Web that they control and upon which they can install tools they want to use as part of their digital identity and work (Watters). Gardner Campbell noted, “In building that personal cyberinfrastructure [through Domain of One’s Own], students not only would acquire crucial technical skills for their digital lives but also would engage in work that provides richly teachable moments ranging from multimodal writing to information science, knowledge management, bibliographic instruction, and social networking” (“Personal Cyberinfrastructure” 59). The Thought Vectors syllabus features a video from the course librarian, Jenny Stout, that helps students think about the importance of sharing their ideas through participation on the Web, saying, “we don’t really know what could happen . . . amazing things could happen.”
