Dear all, 

List members may be interested to know that the German Archaeological Institute (DAI) has issued guidelines on minimum standards in the use of IT in archaeological research, with attention to interoperability, preservation and feasibility, among other things. These standards are now binding on all projects wholly or partly funded by the DAI; as the DAI is one of the biggest players in classical archaeological research, the guidelines may well come to have an influence beyond the institute's own projects.

The guidelines are available at http://www.dainst.de/index_892d6521bb1f14a113030017f0000011_de.html


Best wishes,
Orla

Are Militaries Lagging Their Non-State Enemies in use of Internet?
An Interview with Chris Anderson <http://www.acm.org/ubiquity/volume_10/v10i10_gunderson.html>

The increasing number of cyber attacks on military networks and servers has raised the question of what the global defense community is doing to safeguard military systems and protect the larger global Internet.

Ubiquity's editor, Peter Denning, interviewed Chris Gunderson, who served in the U.S. Navy from 1973 to 2004 and became an expert in "network centric" warfare, on this question and in particular on how military philosophy must change to adapt to the rise of information networks.
