I'm headed to the Great Basin Anthropological Conference (GBAC2014) in a little while. Would have been nice to have someone ride up with me for the 8 hour drive to Boise, but, now I get to listen to podcasts the entire way.
The theme of this year's conference (they actually only happen every two years) is "Transitions" which seems appropriate. I've been in a "transitional" period for a couple years now. In fact, I was laid of from my last company about a month after the last GBAC.
Transitions are good, though. They keep you sharp and keep you always on your toes. When I went out on my own two years ago I started out with just this blog and a crapy podcast. The podcast was basically me reading news items from the week and it was boring.
Now, we're about to record episode 45 of the new format podcast, the CRM Archaeology Podcast, the blog is doing well, I'm setting up an Archaeology Podcast Network, I'm the co-founder in an app development company for field recording (Field Tech Designs) and, I'm developing a website for archaeological certification and training. Lots of irons in the fire, but, keeps me busy.
I hope to get some more posts up here about the conference, but, I'll be focusing on interviews for the podcast. So, stay tuned and go check out the CRM Archaeology Podcast.
