It's Unethical to NOT Go Digital - Episode 145

Archaeology Careers and Jobs.jpg

Going digital is, in Chris’ opinion, a morale and ethical imperative. We are the stewards of other people’s history and it’s our job to ensure their data are secure for as long as it takes. This quote regarding the destruction of the Brazil Museum in September of 2018 says it all:

Folks, there’s nothing left from the Linguistics division. We lost all the indigenous languages collection: the recordings since 1958, the chants in all the languages for which there are no native speakers alive anymore, the Curt Niemuendaju archives: papers, photos, negatives, the original ethnic-historic-linguistic map localizing all the ethnic groups in Brazil, the only record that we had from 1945. The ethnological and archeological references of all ethnic groups in Brazil since the 16th century… An irreparable loss of our historic memory. It just hurts so much to see all in ashes.

Recording Archaeology - Episode 137

Archaeology Careers and Jobs.jpg

Other industries around the world record, either audio or video, presentations from conferences and at least make them available to their members or to those that bought a "virtual ticket". Archaeology is notably behind the curve on this but through the efforts of Doug Rocks-Macqueen and others we're getting there. On today's show we discuss the challenges and ethics behind recording and making available conference presentations.

Too Slow and Too Much - Episode 38

On today's show we talk about a scenario nearly everyone has encountered before, not digging or walking as fast as your crew chief wants you to. Are they going too fast, or, are you going too slow? We also discuss the efficacy of posting jobs on social media sites like Facebook. Does it invite the wrong sort of comments, or, is it something employers should be doing?
