Just some quick hits on a cloudy but warmish North Dakota morning:
- If you haven't checked out Teaching Thursday or Topos/Chora now is the time to do it. View Topos/Chora with any browser other than Internet Explorer.
- It's a fun and busy time here at UND:
- Wednesday, February 24, 2010: The Elwyn B. Robinson Lecture: Digital Archaeology: Technology in the Trenches
- Thursday, March 5, 2010: The Robert Wilkins' Lecture: Robin Jensen presenting "Living Water: Rituals, Spaces, and Images of Early Christian Baptism"
- Thursday, March 5, 2010: The Red River Valley History Conference (more soon!)
- Tuesday, March 23, 2010 - Saturday, March 27, 2010: 41st Annual UND Writers Conference.
- These seem hardly even fun to watch. At least the test series had drama.
- Some fun chatter among my public history interns.
- This is a very nice guide to preparing data for digital publication. Note the emphasis on peer-review. Very cool.
- Thurston Moore is definitely a Punk Archaeologist and his new blog proves it.
- I'm currently reading about The Mangle and love its utility in understanding the interplay between objects and humans.
- Does anyone use Scribd? Is it a convenient platform for a working papers site?
Have a good weekend!
