Some odds and ends on a snowy Friday.
- Ryan Stander, who is rapidly becoming the star of this blog, has some photos showing with this project here.
- I've been thinking about the recent vogue in photographing abandoned buildings. Kostis posted on it this past week, he linked to an article by Camio Jose Vergara, and I've been mesmerized by the photographs of James D. Griffioen. I wonder what this all means...
- A thoughtful review of PBS's Digital Nation by Henry Jenkins that offers some interesting observations on writing in our digital age.
- I'm not a huge fan of the 20-20 format in Cricket, but this must have been an exciting game, and it's great to see Shaun Tait be successful again.
- My public history intern's blog, The Muses' Web is so far pretty successful.
- Some fun articles came across my desk this week: from Ottoman cemeteries to digital Catalhoyuk (via Shawn Graham)
- For those interested in seeing me in the flesh: February 24, 2010 - I'm giving the Elwyn B. Robinson lecture at the Chester Fritz Library on campus at the University of North Dakota; the talk is "Digital Archaeology: Technology in the Trenches". On April 29, 2010, I am going to give one of the Faculty Lecture Series Lectures, probably at the North Dakota Museum of Art, paper title tbd.
- So this kid is going to put Bear, Delaware on the map. Sweet.
I am ready for the weekend! Enjoy the big game and the unofficial start of NASCAR season.
