Digital Humanities would definitely fit on Richter’s map.  As with most technology, programs such as Wordle provide us with a new way to do things we already were.  E-mail, text messaging, Twitter, and others all allow us to do things more efficiently; they are not magical gateways that suddenly allowed humans to interact with one another over distances.  Of course digital humanities would fit into his map.  Like any other new idea, one must simply find an avenue in which to include and integrate it.  If one can think outside the box, then the feat is not all that difficult.  Whether or not the digital humanities are as useful as past method and theories is another story.
