  From Roy Rosenzweig:

ECHO TOOLS CENTER: The number of historians interested in using digital
tools to facilitate their work has been rapidly expanding, as has the
number of researchers developing online tools for the humanities. In order
to facilitate contact between these two groups, Echo would like to announce
the beta launch of its new Tools Center, an experimental, comprehensive
resource for scholars interested in the nuts and bolts of online history.
Just as Echo's Research Center offers a guide to thousands of history
websites, the Tools Center is envisioned as a central directory of the
myriad pieces of software and other tools available to contemporary
historians. Built using the same open-source software that powers sites
like Wikipedia, the Tools Center is a specifically collaborative resource,
enabling developers to post descriptions of their products, and users to
apply their own expertise to build and expand its entries. Though still in
beta form, we invite both historians and software developers to visit the
Tools Center at http://echo.gmu.edu/toolcenter-wiki/ and contribute their
knowledge to this growing asset to the online history community.
