What do all these means?
We’ll address each of those “-ology’s” I listed above in our journey, but I wanted to tell you a little about myself.
Im Joseph A. “Joe” Evans, a technoarchaeologist at the University of South Florida (Conveniently Placed Department Bio Link!), and Im very excited to launch anthropologythroughglass.wordpress.com! I was recently invited to become a part of Google’s #GlassExplorer program and became the first archaeologist/anthropologist to do so (although I’m joined by some amazing archaeological additions) and I thought this blog could be the perfect platform for getting any of the resources I discover out to folks who might need them or want to try them. Basically I’ll be bringing my archaeological experience and a front-row seat to the types and kinds of projects that I do and posting as much as I can (legally and ethically, mind you) to this blog, so stay tuned. I have to thank the amazing folks at Silica Labs for creating their amazing Glassware application, Wanderbee, which will allow me to live blog directly from Glass!
Now get your whips, fedoras, and laptops ready for some technoarchaeology!
In case you’re wondering, my research primarily focuses on emerging technologies and methods developed for industries and sectors outside of anthropology or archaeology and their viability as solutions to our challenges. I explore what was, what is, and what could be.
