We’ve been scouring the web to bring you some of the best CAA2012 content from delegates. Here are some highlights:
CAA2012 on Storify
There are multiple great Storifies (is that the plural?!) that delegates have created showcasing their favourite CAA2012 moments.
CAA2012 on Twitter
There are now just under 12,000 tweets in the #caasoton archive! We’ve been collecting them,and will make them available as an archive soon.
CAA2012 on del.icio.us
Those 12,000 tweets included alot of web links. The archive will be available soon, but in the meantime, we’ve automatically put all of the URLs from the tweets into a del.icio.us account, so that you can look through and visit any useful websites. Ultimately, we’d like to organise these into papers/sessions, so any suggestions on how to go about this will be much appreciated!
CAA Personal Memories Gigapan
James Miles, of the Archaeological Computing Research Group, University of Southampton, has created an interactive timeline using the memories that you shared with us at the CAA2012.
The timeline uses Gigapan software to compile a series of photographs that James took to record the giant timeline that you may remember seeing at the conference.
You can add comments to the timeline, and also upload your own snapshots; so please do join in with collecting the Personal Histories of the CAA!
By far and away, the most exciting development for us, has been the willingness of paper authors to share their presentations. There are already a few presentations available on slideshare, and we hope to see many more being uploaded over the next few weeks.
They’re proving quite tricky to track down so, if you add your paper presentation on slideshare, please let us know so that we can link to it here to broaden its reach.
If you are planning on adding your presentation to slideshare, please tag it with ‘caasoton’ so that we can find it!
Here are some of the presentations that we have found so far (I’ve tracked down 18 presentations, but I am sure that there are more), in no particular order:
