Varia and Quick Hits

A few random quick hits on a sunny and warm fall midmorning:

” to explore shared opportunities and challenges for large-scale German and American excavations in the Mediterranean in the digital age. The project is supported by the Deutsche Forschungsgemeinschaft (Germany) and the National Endowment for the Humanities (USA). Initially, this website will act as a forum as private collaboration but, as the project progresses, it will also become a tool for publicly disseminating the results in the hope that lessons learned will benefit other institutions investigating collaborative ways to support digital scholarship.”

It’s a cool program and initiative, but I wish they would make the proceedings of their symposium more public. Those of us struggling with the process of digitizing “little digs” and surveys would love to see and understand more clearly how the big boys do it.

Now back to preparing the data for the Ohio Boeotia Expedition.

Have a great weekend.
