SXSW Notes and Tweets

The panel went well, though all of us wished that we had more time to speak and answer questions.  I kept my powerpoint simple and tried very hard not to stare at my notes the whole time.

Ruth joined us in Second Life and answered a question toward the end.  Sadly, she couldn’t hear most of the questions and I felt a bit strange paraphrasing them on screen while the person was still talking.

Here are some “tweets” from twitter about the panel.  Unfortunately we didn’t set up our own hashtags ahead of time, so they were hard to track down:

“In Europe, we have a lot of archeology.. takes 6 months to start building a hotel foundation”, Eve #sxsw #indiana
“Second life is dead? GREAT, we love dead things.” -Colleen Morgan at archaeology panel

#sxsw “tools like second life and flickr: they’re really good to think with”. Archaeology panel is well done

Now, how about that whole dissertation thing?  I should work on that, probably.
