The OKAPI (Open Knowledge And the Public Interest) blog provides details about the project and team at UC Berkeley that aim to improve public scholarship using new media.  Their primary aim is to pioneer a new Center for Digital Scholarship.  Having worked with Michael Ashley last year on the Remediated Places project with Ruth Tringham and previously at Çatalhöyük and in Bulgaria, I know his enthusiasm for promoting digital research.

Working with Michael and Ruth last year was a great experience and really opened my eyes to the potential and enthusiasm that exists for using new media and digital resources to further, and share, archaeological knowledge.  I acknowledge their energy and encouragement as it provided the inspiration to get this blog going.  I hope for more collaboration and convergence of ideas over the pond.
