From the ASCSA website:

Regular members of the ASCSA began excavation on April 7 south of the museum and Temple E with the goal to unite the conserved portions of the Frankish area with the ‘plateia’ south of the museum.  This area will be open to the public once the area is consolidated.  ‘Trenches’ were also opened within the Church and north of the church.  Participants in the first of three sessions include Maggie Beeler, Morgan Condell, Hans Hansen, Stephanie Kimmey, Jen Swalec, Sarah Rous, Alex Seufert, Colin Whiting, and Rebecca Worsham.  Ross Brendle is working in the museum with our black figure pottery collection.  Jody Cundy is the site supervisor and Rosana Valente is assisting in the pot sheds.  Google Glass is one exciting addition to the recording system, thanks to Andrew Reinhard, Director of Publications, who has generously lent his unit to us.

I am always happy to see more video on site. I am hoping that we hear more about their use of Glass while the season continues.

The New York Times has an interactive comparison chart for the different models of tablets on the market. They promise to keep their page updated as new models come out so you might want to bookmark: http://www.nytimes.com/interactive/technology/personaltech/2010-tablet-computer-comparison.html?ref=technology

There is a forum thread in Notion Addicts that started out with a discussion on using NotionInk’s Adam tablet in archaeology but then was soon broadened to include all of Android. The thread then split into a discussion on the best type of note-taking/data collection apps to create/use for Android for several fields, including archaeology.

I have been looking at the Adam for its transflective screen but I suppose it will be a while before I see one in person.
