It’s cold and snowy and cold here in North Dakotaland, but we all have plenty to do between snow removal, the start of classes, and good ole North Dakotee-Style keepin’ busy.
As I continue to ponder the future of this blog and various bits and pieces of my computer infrastructure, I’m wondering whether any of my dedicated readers can give me tips for web clipper program. For years, I’ve used Evernote, which used to be great, but now is a bloated catastrophe of bugs, useless (and unsupported) features, and memory. I just want something simple that lets me save pages for my quick hits and varia from my phone or my laptop into the cloud.
In the meantime, here are this week’s quick hits and varia:
- Finkelstein on the Archaeology, Archaeologists, and the Bible.

- The ethics of using social media in the classroom.
- The New Koreas chair at King’s College London.
- This photograph haunts me.
- Greece and Shariah law.
- Ancient Nemea closed.
