This volume documents the contributions of the conference â??Digital Editions between Experiment and Standardizationâ?, which took place on December 6?8, 2007 in the Heinz Nixdorf Museum Forum in Paderborn. It contains the written versions of the oral presentations ? here for the most part greatly expanded ? as well as summaries of the panel discussions of the three conference sections: concepts of digital editions, data formats for written music, and problems of encoding letters, diaries etc. Der vorliegende Band dokumentiert die Beiträge der gleichnamigen Paderborner Tagung vom Dezember 2007 und enthält die teils deutlich erweiterten schriftlichen Fassungen der Referate sowie Zusammenfassungen der Podiumsdiskussionen. Die Tagung verstand sich als Fortsetzung des 2006 mit der Mainzer Tagung ´´Digitale Medien und Musikedition´´ begonnen Dialogs über digitale Editionsformen und war auf das aktuelle ,Zwischenstadium´ fokussiert, in dem einerseits noch Leuchtturmprojekte das Bild prägen, sich andererseits aber bereits internationale und interdisziplinäre Standards herauskristallisieren.So finden sich in dem Band fächerübergreifende Beiträge aus der Informatik, der Literaturwissenschaft und der Musikwissenschaft, die einerseits allgemeine Perspektiven für das ,digitale Zeitalter´ entwickeln, zum anderen aber auch konkrete Projekte vorstellen oder die Tauglichkeit von XML-Datenstandards für die Codierung von Musik oder Texten (speziell hinsichtlich der Verwendung von TEI bei der Briefauszeichnung) diskutieren.

The year is 1792, and Herbert Powyss is set on making his name as a scientist. He is determined to study the effects of prolonged solitude on another human being, though before now Powyss´ sole subjects have been the plants in his greenhouse. He fills three rooms beneath Moreham House with books, paintings and even a pianoforte, then puts out an advertisement, hoping for a gentleman recluse to claim the substantial reward.The only man desperate enough to apply is John Warlow, a semi-literate farm labourer who needs to support his wife, Hannah, and their six children. Cut off from nature and the turning of the seasons, Warlow soon begins losing his grip on sanity. Aboveground, Powyss finds yet another distraction from his greenhouse in the form of Hannah, with whom he rapidly becomes obsessed. Does she return his feelings, or is she just afraid of his power over her family´s lives? Meanwhile, the servants are brewing up a rebellion inspired by recent news from across the Channel. Powyss may have set events in motion, but he is powerless to prevent their explosive and devastating conclusion.Elegantly told and utterly transporting, The Warlow Experiment is an outstanding literary novel that announces a major new voice in British fiction. 1.

In the distant future, humans wage war against the alien planet Caeorleia, with no tactic off-limits if it will help the humans get their hands on Caeorleia´s resources. Ask Ryker. He thought he volunteered for a simple experiment that would help his government in the war. He didn´t realize sadistic doctors would turn him into the experiment - by injecting him with blood from a captured Caeorleian, Seral Iorflas. Nor did Ryker realize he´d be sent to sabotage a planet full of the very beings his world is battling, beings who kill humans on sight. But then, thanks to the experiment that irrevocably changed him, he isn´t exactly human any longer - and with each passing day, as his blood bond with Seral strengthens, he´s less and less sure as to whose side he´s on. 1.

Michael A. Singer, author of The Untethered Soul, tells the extraordinary story of what happened when, after a deep spiritual awakening, he decided to let go of his personal preferences and simply let life call the shots. As Singer takes you on this great experiment and journey into life´s perfection, the events that transpire will both challenge your deepest assumptions about life and inspire you to look at your own life in a radically different way. Spirituality is meant to bring about harmony and peace. But the diversity of our philosophies, beliefs, concepts, and views about the soul often leads to confusion. To reconcile the noise that clouds spirituality, Michael Singer combines accounts of his own life journey to enlightenment - from his years as a hippie-loner to his success as a computer program engineer to his work in spiritual and humanitarian efforts - with lessons on how to put aside conflicting beliefs, let go of worries, and transform misdirected desires. Singer provides a road map to a new way not of living in the moment but to exist in a state of perpetual happiness. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Michael A. Singer.
