Looking Back at 100 Episodes - ArchaeoTech 100

Archaeology and Technology.jpg

Welcome to the ArchaeoTech Podcast. Today is February 26th, 2019, so put on your party hat because we're recording the 100th episode. This is Paul Zimmerman, your host for for this milestone, along with my co-host (the pod's usual host) Chris Webster. We're turning the tables since we don't have a "tech" topic per se, but instead we're going to do a little navel gazing and look at the history of this podcast to see what kinds of lessons we can learn about podcasting and public archaeology in general.

Do you need the new watch? Will the new operating system crash your hard drive? We'll talk about all that and our experiences with iOS 12, Watch OS 5, and MacOS Mohave, 10.14.

Preventing Data Loss - ArchaeoTech 84

Archaeology and Technology.jpg

Data loss is one of the most terrifying things an archaeologist, or any scientist, fears. To have all that hard work, and sometimes un-replicable work, lost because of something that you could ultimately control is something we don't like to think about. But, we have to. Especially as archaeology goes more into the digital realm all field archaeologists have to think about how they are preserving and backing up their data not only in the field but at every step of the process. Paul and Chris talk about this problem and some possible solutions on today's episode.
