    I'll jump on the band-wagon Aime Morrison started: the Perseus Project
    currently employs three postdoctoral research associates (yours truly is
    one) and, like the Orlando Project, has had numerous postdocs over the years.

    I say this not so much to toot horns as to add more data to support the
    contention that humanities computing research work is gaining respect: it
    would be interesting to get some numbers on how many humanities-computing
    postdocs there are out there, and, more important, how many of them are
    going on to tenure-track jobs or other employment in academia, where the
    real measure of respect for the field might be taken.
