This blog is produced by Educational Technology and Media Services at the College of the Holy Cross, Worcester, Massachusetts.

The name of this blog, Kernel Panic, is taken from the lore of the Unix computer operating system:

“A kernel panic is an action taken by an operating system upon detecting an internal fatal error from which it cannot safely recover [Wikipedia].”

Kernel Panic will provide information, resources, and technical support on the uses of technology in scholarly research and teaching. Areas of concentration include, but are not limited to, data analysis and visualization, geographic information systems (GIS), computer programming, research and writing tools, web technology, and bibliographic reference management. Individual blog posts are organized by category. Recent posts are displayed on the Home page, and the entire blog can be searched using the Search box.
