The article discusses the importance of practice for conducting research on digital culture. It poses questions about whether one should possess technical competences in the field of digital humanities and in what way they can facilitate research attempting to describe the contemporary world. This issue is analysed using the theory of the third culture developed by Charles Percy Snow. The argument also focuses on other researchers representing various strategies for combining practice with theory, such as: Lev Manovich, Alexander R. Galloway, Jan Stasieńko and Mirosław Filiciak. The aim of the article is to describe the emerging, new image of a humanist studying digital culture, whose new competence may be seen as a remedy for the ongoing crisis of the humanities.
