My name is Stacey L. Camp, and I am an Associate Professor of Anthropology and Director of the Alfred W. Bowers Laboratory of Anthropology at the University of Idaho. In 2015, I was selected to be a funded participant in the National Endowment for the Humanities’ Institute on Digital Archaeology & Practice, which involved two summers of workshops at Michigan State University. I blogged my project’s successes and failures, and eventually built a website for the archaeological repository I direct at the University of Idaho. I also created a still-in-progress personal website, that I developed as part of learning Bootstrap.
I began this blog because I want to share the experience of a busy archaeologist and professional applying digital technology to archaeology and to the classroom. I am fascinated by failures, obstacles, and obsolescence in technological ventures. My first forays into technology began in 1993 when I learned to program and code on an Apple IIe, and continued when I learned HTML in 1995. I’ve maintained numerous failed websites and blogs since then.
