  • Dimitrovska Vasilka University of Belgrade Glocal 2.0 Second International Conference New York University, Skopje May 8-10, 2008 Blogging Archaeology Creating an Open Access Source for Knowledge
  • Scientific aspects of blogging How do you know that my blog is reliable?
  • Bosnian Pyramid of Sun, Visoko, Bosna and Herzegovina
  • Bosnian Pyramid of Sun, Visoko, Bosna and Herzegovina
  • Bosnian Pyramid of Sun with its Founder
  • Semir Osmanagic`s book about the origin of the Bosnian Pyramid

  • AIA`s letter to UNESCO More information on this case is available at: http://www.archaeology.org/online/features/osmanagic/update.html
  • Archeology seeks physical evidence Still, the absence of available evidence that something does not exist is not proof that the thing exists
  • Masterpiece of marketing campagne
  • Visitors of the Pyramids
  • Web site dedicated to the Bosnian Pyramid of Sun
  • Blog dedicated to the Bosnian Pyramid of Sun
  • Facebook group supporting Bosnian Pyramid
  • Metablog – APWR (Anti Pyramid Web Ring)
  • Cultural heritage is always 'in'
  • How to differentiate between proper science and quasi-science?
  • How to establish the credibility of the content of a archaeological scientific blog? „ Give me a couple of facts, and I'll construct you a truth.“
    • - Using other reliable sources
    • - Logical analysis, often of multiple possibilities, including evaluation of probability of truth;
    • - Presenting arguments from all conflicting sides of the debate on teh given subject, etc.
    • The scientist's own opinion/conclusion, refraining from claims of absolute certitude
    Content
    • - Impersonal style: most scientists refrain from subjective references: there would be rarely any 'I' in the text. The style would approximate objectiveness.
    • - Proper referencing of used sources (name of the author, the publication, year of publishing, publishing house, etc.)
    • - Hyperlinks in e-texts leading to referenced data sources.
    • - Bibliography
    • - Clear non-ambiguous meaning of sentences.
    • Good spelling, absence of colloquialisms. Professional jargon accurately used.
    Style and format:
  • Blogging science: create open access source for knowledge
  • Typical differences between printed archaeological journals and archeo web blogs Printed archaeological journals Acheo websites and blogs Printed Electronic (Limited) (access in any time) Subscription  on line  Free Rigid discussions Flexible Static information Dynamic  Updated
  • Active sharing  Blogger  exchange  Reader   Personal perspective Ideas Analyses Opinions Experience Commentary Conclusion  dynamic scientific debate  Internet community  interactivity shapes the knowledge into science Dynamic interface of blog allows:
  • My web blogs about archaeology
  • William R. Caraher – archaeologist and blogger
  • Blogging Archaeology and the Archaeology of Blogging
  • Problem wtih blogging Archaeology Ephemeral of the blogs
  • Is the Blog a New Tool for New Thinking?

  • World Archaeological Congress (WAC)
  • Archaeology in the Digital Age 2.0 BLOG
  • Colleen Morgan, Anthropology Department, University of California, Berkeley Archaeologists have been rapidly integrating new media technologies into their interpretive schemes through a variety of methods. Virtual worlds, social networking websites, blogs, wikis, and digital photo mash-ups are becoming legitimate alternate ways to present archaeological information. Lower entry points for remixing photography, film, and databases into multimodal presentations increase the potential for archaeologists to use these media to tell their own stories. This, combined with a growing ubiquity of online media platforms, allows us to reach out to new publics by integrating archaeology into a greater social sphere.
  • Where lies the base of knowledge on Internet Conclusion:
  • Knowledge is not just information
  • Scientific knowledge  Raw data    Human interpretation Analysis Linking of data  Transformation  Information into knowledge  Communication  Blogging
  • BLOG YOUR EXPERTISE CREATE AN OPEN ACESS SOURCE FOR KNOWLEDGE THROUGH COMMUNICATION ON THE INTERNET
