Adam Rabinowitz’s Blog Post “The Work of Archaeology in the Age of Digital Surrogacy” is a brilliant thought provoking piece, and I couldn’t resist reposting here.

At CHI we have been wrestling with issues of scientific imaging and process history and what it means to be a digital surrogate for many years.  As a classicist, Adam shows us that these issues aren’t new and that reproductions and surrogates and the issues surrounding them for scholarly inquiry go back millennia.

Thanks Adam, for a thought provoking piece!

Interesting, thoughtful article, and so are the links contained in it. I like the author’s proposed acronym, MRMPH, for the four principles of publication and archiving: measurement, raw data, metadata, and process history.
