These are our links for June 16th through June 19th:

  • wg/archaeology – Open Knowledge Foundation Wiki – Working Group on Open Data in Archaeology
  • Open Knowledge Foundation Blog » Blog Archive » Dig the new breed, Part II – open archaeology and ethics – "…archaeologists, for right or wrong, consider the implications of placing fine grained data in the public domain and “Ethical considerations” have been identified as a “barrier” to deposition. However, there appears to be limited guidance as to how to resolve these issues. This means that many archaeologists are re-inventing the wheel. The challenge is to provide some supporting “thing” that makes it easy for individuals and organisations to get to a clear, and hopefully unambiguous, ethical position. Such a “thing” will reduce uncertainty thereby removing one of the barriers to data sharing. The current default position is the equivalent of doing nothing: surely this must change."
  • Neighbourhoods Learning Together — BVSC – Course available for community activists in North Birmingham and Sandwell: "30 places are available and we want to the group to reflect the diversity of the area. If there are barriers or support needs which are making you hesitate, then let us know and we’ll see what we can do. The venues for the sessions will be wheel chair accessible."
