Friday Varia and Quick Hits

Yesterday’s visit by Andrew Reinhard was hectic, but great. 

Andrew and I started the day with a Skype presentation for the Digital Heritage Meets Interactive Storytelling Conference at the University of York. Andrew then talked to history majors and graduate students in our department about academic careers outside of academia and his work in archaeological publishing in particular. We then headed over the Gorecki Alumni center for an interview with the local news, WDAZ, and an interactive display of vintage Atari games. We wrapped up the day with a showing of Atari: Game Over and a panel discussion. While the crowd was not quite what we hoped for, the entire day was exciting enough to be declared a success. I’ll post a link to the recording of the event when it become available! In the meantime here’s a link to the coverage in the Grand Forks Herald and here’s a link to a short piece on Prairie Public Radio.

Today will be more proceed at a somewhat less frantic pace and feature some time to work on a publication plan for the results of the Atari dig and to record a podcast focusing on Archaeogaming.

In the meantime, I’ll offer a modest list of quick hits and varia for your weekend reading pleasure:
