It's the way humans have been since the beginning of time.
There are only two ways you can deal with this; ignore it and lose the advantage of advancement or embrace it and enjoy all the benefits that bestow it.
Alexander Garham Bell had some technology to hand and believe it or not, some doubters said that telephones will not catch on. His answer was "Every town will have one". Now that was some foresight.
Can you remember the time when there was only Exchange & Mart that could lead you to "bargains"? Now you can check out several websites and compare prices, worldwide, instantly and order that item, fully aware of its price and review rating. Yet there are still people that think that the internet is abhorrent! A simple case of denial, surely?
Anyway, thats the preamble sorted, now on to our first installment of technology that may help in the detetcting world.
As you may know we have already touched on the subject of Twitter.
I've been a member of the Twitter community since July 2012 but I'll be the first to admit that I didn't know what it was "all about" but I did recognise that it may become useful at some future date.
The first realisation was that if you "follow" the right people you can keep up with all the information that you are interested in. For example; if you follow The British Museum, PAS or any archaeological body of your choice, you will be better informed. It's almost like turning on the TV and all the "news" is archaeologically related.
We have begun trials of "tweeting" LIVE updates as we survey. This enables our finds to be revealed as-and-when we recover them.
This may enable the realisation of our quest to promote a platform of transparent finds recording.
As a team we really do embrace the technological advancements of all the aspects of our hobby. Whether that be V4 for the Déus, LiDAR, Google, on-line literature, hints an tips from forums, etc,etc.
Please do ask if you've any questions regarding technology.
