Show Notes

Computer science, English storytelling, and Ancient History! Today on Kernel, 21st century Renaissance man Daniel Olivieri is here to tell tales of his journey to becoming an accidental programming whiz and his work over the summer to tell the story of Carthaginian general Hannibal Barca through an interactive online map. Daniel is the most passionate, excitable multi-talented guy and I hope you enjoy his wit, whimsy, and wisdom! If you really want to get into the interactive storytelling here, you can visit his map website as we talk to hear him tell you about it's inception in real time! http://mappingancienttexts.net/wp-content/uploads/2018/06/v6spw.html
