Non-job announcement - E-tiquity - from SAA !
While I rarely like to send out non job related postings, this one
caught my eye because I believe this is a great step in the right
direction for the SAA's to take with their new online journal
E-tiquity. This is following in the footsteps of some fantastic online
UK resources like the, formerly free, Internet Archaeology at
http://intarch.ac.uk/ (pity - I miss the go-go early 90's of Mosaic 1.0
when everything on the 'net was free...). Check out e-tiquity for free
below, and more importantly, contribute to make this resource grow and
be useful to us all - and encourage them to keep this free.
Off subject - Happy Belated Birthday to Jim Strait. Jim is a good
friend and was a founding member of the Uark pocket_gophers group which
was the springboard for the start of Shovelbums.org. If you are in the
field with him in Montana do me a favor and buy him his favorite drink
for me and wish him a happy one.
