    Hey all,
    I started this group hoping that folks interested in digital public archaeology (in its myriad forms) would join and we could start chatting about ideas to connect us. I have noticed that many of us have similar challenges but may feel alone within our region, subdiscipline, institution, and whatnot.

    Right now I am contemplating the challenges of pursuing a public-facing career. Explaining your value (and that you are worthy of payment) is tough from inside and outside. People get offended often when they are told that there are still things to learn about engaging “the public” effectively.

    What are you guys thinking about when you contemplate “digital public archaeology” right now?

    I came across this article yesterday, written by Donna Zuckerberg, an editor at Ediolon, which is a Classics journal for the public. It addresses some of the same things you mention about engaging a wider public. I was also interested in the way she mentions the lack of emphasis put on originality, and instead focuses on clarity and the why-does-it-matter factor.
