This came from a discussion I had during the 2010 field season at Pompeii. Leigh Lieberman is one of our registrars at PARP:PS. We were talking about the overall team’s acceptance of the new technological changes that had been introduced in the past few years. Leigh observed that the team might be resistant to change during the season that change is introduced, but by the next season they are already used to it. We decided to shorten that thought to the following principle:

Technology becomes second nature in its second year.
