The humanities still have a pulse ...

As I read this piece in today's NYT, all I could think was, wow, maybe I could be connected to the humanities in some way. The key quote:
The next big idea in language, history and the arts? Data.
A bunch of UW grad students doing linguistics have taken as their motto, "data's nice".

PS:Forget about singular versus plural 'data': 'humanities has' or 'humanities have'?

Depends on whether you're right- or left-pondian, doesn't it?
