Scalar and the Challenge of Writing Media-Rich Scholarship for the Web

Alright, I admit that title was a mouthful.  Basically, I just wanted to alert readers who may not have heard of it that there’s a new, web-based digital authoring tool called Scalar that they may find useful.  It’s an open-source application built by the Alliance for Networking Visual Culture at USC.  Unlike many authoring tools, it was designed by scholars for scholars, and more particularly by new media scholars for the new media environment.
