Double Fine just announced that they are developing a full version of one of their finest Amnesia Fortnight prototypes - Zelda-esque "hacking" game. I'm pretty sure this website is the start of an ARG too: clicking on the image prompts the download of a 12.4MB ".zip.jpg" file. http://www.hacknslashthegame.com/

+Jim deVos Excellent! I rarely actually play ARGs, but they're a blast to follow. I went to a talk a month or two ago about the Portal 2 ARG that was great fun.

A friend of mine has started up a blog on cultural anthropology and the first post is about the use of technology. Give it a look!

That's the plan: make data about the past more preservable, accessible, and ready to be analyzed. 😀

Woohoo! After futzing around for a bit on my own, +Brian Ballsun-Stanton swooped in and together we got the FAIMS server running on my machine! Now, the FAIMS data recorder app automagically finds the server on my network and I can sync data back and forth to my heart's content. Thanks Brian!  #archaeology

Hey Washington archys: might I see any of you at the upcoming Redford Conference in Archaeology? It's nearby, the registration fee is small, and the topic (imho) is fascinating!

Taking Archaeology Digital: A Conference on the Use of New Technologies in Archaeology
University of Puget Sound, October 25 - 28, 2012

Story
Introduction
     I am an Digital Archaeologist focused on software education and the dissemination and archival of digital archaeological information.

     I believe that wider understanding of software tools and better data organization allows archaeologists to conduct broad scale analyses, increase access to data, and preserve data from archaeological sites forever. To that end, I advocate for and share with colleagues software techniques and data organization tips everywhere I work, with an emphasis on giving them skills for increasing efficiency and making best use of data.
