It was a cold week here in North Dakotaland, but that’s why people pay the price of admission. This weekend, we’ll get a little break for the cold with temperatures soaring into the 20s F, but to remind us that this is North Dakota and the weather makes the rules, we’re going to have a blizzard.
There are, of course, worse things that could happen on a weekend and it gives us a good excuse to stay inside, read a good book, watch some NFLing, and, at least this morning, keep an eye on the second Australia-Indian ODI (in Rajkot where it is a lovely 72 degrees F).
To make things just a bit easier, you could head over to The Digital Press page and download the latest Epoiesen Annual (volume 3!) or go and read this interview with Shawn Graham where he discusses failure, teaching, digital archaeology and humanities, and his growing media empire!
