It’s here!  I’m getting ready to go to Austin, TX to speak on a panel at South by Southwest, an annual music conference that has grown to include film and interactive media.  When I lived in Austin I would go check out hundreds of bands that were playing all over town, but this will be my first time to attend the interactive conference.  This is the first panel dealing with digital archaeology to appear at the conference, and I’m excited to be a part of it.  If you happen to be going to the conference, the panel is on Monday, March 16th, at 11:30 in Room B.
Title: The Real Technology of Indiana Jones

Organizer:
Adam Rabinowitz, University of Texas at Austin
Panelists:
Stuart Eve (University College London), Bernard Frischer (Rome Reborn), Colleen Morgan (University of California at Berkeley), Adam Rabinowitz, moderator (University of Texas)
Description:
Archaeologists no longer rely on whips and fedoras; they now use a range of sophisticated digital tools to collect information in the field and study it in the lab. Too often, though, this wealth of information meets the same fate as Indy’s discoveries, locked away in digital ‘warehouses’ where no one can see it. The archaeologists on this panel present different projects that use web platforms and open-source approaches to bring digital archaeology out of the warehouse and into the public eye. Learn how archaeologists are using interactive media to open their data and processes to the public; discuss the creation of an online archaeological community in Second Life; and explore ancient cities across space and time using publicly-available online tools.

  2. Hi – I’ve been meaning to drop a line to say that i really enjoyed your panel at sxsw. In fact, I’m giving a 5 minute re-presentation of it tomorrow evening at a DC sxsw post-conference event. My internet connection has been mucked up all week and I’m starting to lose track of the messages I’ve actually managed to send this week – now getting an odd sense of deja-vu so do forgive me if I’m repeating myself. I’m not a spammer, just an absent-minded professor :-)

  3. Hi Rebecca! If you’d like my notes from the presentation, or the publication I have (in press) about the subject, let me know. I uploaded my slides to flickr here: http://www.flickr.com/photos/colleenmorgan/3359129657/
