It’s a varia and quick hits from the road. It was close to 60 degrees in our nation’s capital yesterday, but today it supposed to be a far more North Dakota-like mid-30s. I’m actually glad because I worried I might melt.
So a small gaggle of varia and quick hits to wrap up the week:
- Brief notes on the digital session at the Archaeological Institute of America meetings this past weekend.
- Tony Grafton on digital history and the American Historical Association.
- Some thoughts on blogging with comments and without.
- Some more space archaeology (via Richard Rothaus).
- The Pruitt-Igoe Myth. (also via Richard Rothaus)
- What happens to a town when almost everyone leaves and the waters of Devil’s Lake rise.
- A reference to Actor Network Theory in tech journalism.
- Rough day for Indian Cricket. How about David Warner?
- If you haven’t, check out our first Teaching Thursday of the new semester.
- What I’m reading: R.G. Collingwood, The Idea of History. (Oxford 1946).
- What I’m listening to: Dengue Fever, Cannibal Courtship and Venus on Earth.
