Days from when I said "Google Trends for historical terms might be worse than nothing" to the release of "Google ngrams:" 12. So: we'll get to see!

Also, I take back everything I said about 'digital humanities' having unfortunate implications. "Culturomics"—like 'culturenomics', but fluffier?—takes the cake.

Anyway, I should have some more thoughts on this later. I have them now, I suppose, but let me digest. For now, just dwell on the total lack of any humanists in that article promising to revolutionize the humanities.
