Same goes for social media APIs.</p> <p>I agree about Zotero as a program that is in widespread use and looks likely to set the standards for the future. </p> John Fink on "DH's greatest hits?

I always considered them sort of libraries' territory. And while I definitely agree that Mongo (and other NoSQL/key-value stores) are on the upswing, it's pretty tenuous to say that Mongo is a DH creation, unless there's a 10gen origin story that I'm not familiar with.</p> <p>If we're going to get down to discrete protocols or programs as examples, I'd put forth CHNM's Zotero. </p> footnotesrising on "DH's greatest hits?

(<a href="http://services.data.gov/sparql" rel="nofollow">http://services.data.gov/sparql</a>) Europe is way ahead of the US in this regard and will likely stay there for some time.<br /> * SPARQL querying language overall. (Noticing a trend here?)<br /> * On Demand cloud services like Rackspace that put larger server resources in DH hands on an as-needed basis. </p> Bethany Nowviskie on "DH's greatest hits?

I can name a few more of my own, but am writing something on behalf of the ACH community, so would like to engage the wisdom of the crowd! </p>
