the 2008 Pecos Conferece
We are looking for someone with a mobile home with satellite
internet connection to contact us. We want them to park near
the conference site and create a wireless hotspot so conference
attendees can sit outside the link and connect via wireless

If you are
unable to attend the 2008 Pecos Conference, you can follow the
action on your browser. Just visit Brandon
Gabler's twitter blog or the Dogyears
twitter blog to read our conference " tweets " posted
throughout the conference.
You can also
sign-up with the free Twitter
service to automatically receive Pecos Conference 'tweet' messages
via your IM client or on-the-go via your cell phone SMS text-messaging
service. Each Pecos Conference " tweet " message will
be less than 140 characters in length, with multiple messages
posted during many of our conference presentations using a blackberry
device with cell phone short-message-signal text messaging technology
At this year's
Pecos Conference, the organizing committee hopes to recruit additional
conference participants to blog and make
conference videos featuring the work of the conference presenters
and of the conference special workshops and seminars.
blogging efforts may be in real time (if we have connectivity at
the conference site). We still have to work on the connectivity
concept a bit more since the conference is mostly out-of-doors on
the lower slopes of the San Francisco Peaks.
We hope to do this "safely" by having videographers
& bloggers sign up to receive recommended standards of operation
and conduct from the committee, and by asking conference presenters
to "agree" to be interviewed when they submit their
talk or poster titles and abstracts for consideration. "Safely"
also means critical self-circumspection to assure sensitive archaeological
site location information and other data are removed from presentations
or not included as part of these blogs, interviews & videos.
We hope to secure permission from involved participants so as
not to diminish or harm anyone's intellectual property rights
(to existing works, or with regard to future works which arise
from this effort).
We hope student archaeologists will blog and shoot video to gather
data, and to get the experience for their resumes
If you have useful technological or method standards, links or other
ideas to suggest, we'd love to hear them !
