Some links on a cloudy Friday morning.
- A long time ago, I wrote an online article on Blogging Archaeology. Now I wonder whether I should write an article on archaeology and the new(er) media. It's exciting that projects are beginning to use Twitter to keep stakeholders and the general public interested in their work. Check out the Gabii Project's Twitter feed followed me the other day, and I'm glad they did! They continue a tradition a practice we used during the PKAP season and the Ostia Antica excavations used to chronicle their fieldwork. I love my tweets from Research News in Late Antiquity and Chuck Jones' ISAW Tweets. Anyone have any idea who was the first project to Tweet from the field?
- It would be fantastic to produce an index of good archaeological video on YouTube.
- The effort to save Michigan State's Classic's Department has moved to petition stage. Over 800 signatures so far. I wish I understood the situation there better.
- This is a cool blog design.
- Really busy day on Teaching Thursday yesterday. Check it out.
- Firefox is 5 years old. The Wordpress folk noted Firefox has crept up on Internet Explore consistently over the last few years. Now it accounts for 45.7% of visitors to their blog. This is up from 32.8% in 2008 and 30.7% in 2008 and 2007 respectively. (via Scott Moore)
- This is how you teach (via Chuck Reynolds)
- It's so cool that Arranged Delirium is back.
Have a good Friday and weekend.
