Will today’s graduate training in Historical Archaeology predict the future of digital research archives?
This post is part of the May 2012 Technology Week, a quarterly topical discussion about…
It’s Tech Week on the Blog and the Technology Committee has something special in store. We have brought together three innovators in the field of online databases and data sharing, and have asked each author to answer a question:
Where do you see online databases and data sharing in five to ten years? What role do you see your respective organization playing in the larger field of archaeological data sharing and online databases? What major hurdles do you think stand in the way of wide scale acceptance and use of online databases in the archaeological community?
Mark Freeman from Stories Past
Jillian Galle from the Digital Archaeological Archive of Comparative Slavery (DAACS)
Adam Brin and Frank McManamon from the Center for Digital Antiquity
Each author has provided us with an interesting view point from their own personal experience and organization. By looking at each post, it should be possible to get a good understanding of where data sharing has come from, where it is going, and what is on the horizon. We encourage you to read the posts and join in the conversation in the comment section or on Twitter, using the #SHAtechWk hashtag.
