Hello world!

I’m glad to announce that I’m currently working on bringing Archaeology and Tech Network 3.0 to you all!

It is once again time for change and this is the biggest ever!

First version was launched at the summer in 2009 it growed a bit had about 10 page views a day which at that time felt quite nice to see people interested at all and also was a good first test.

But in February in 2010 the homepage was paused due to lack of time keeping it running.

In July 2010 it was time for a major re-launch and now on a broad front! The homepage got a new WordPress theme. Twitter was done archaeologytech, a Facebook group was created Archaeology and Tech as well as a Youtube channel Archaeologyandtech (check them out!). The previously blog was recreated as a homepage with a news section and a lot of pages with a lot of different subjects. The visitors numbers continued to grow and the ARATNE became known at Google and Bing.

Now the homepage increased a lot with a total of 359 page views one day as maximum so far… But soon the limitations came with using free WordPress. Understand me correctly free WordPress is really great and have been a blast but for developing this homepage something more was needed…

So now I’ve currently made the transition to a paid webhotel. Currently I’m waiting for all the details like the domain name getting registered correctly so it will take a few more days to get everything running and I’ll continue posting here in the meanwhile!

By being on a paid webhotel I can decide a lot more about my homepage and develop it the way I want to and I can make it grow easier as well. I will continue to use WordPress 3 at the new site since it is a great platform and still works for my coming plans.

So much will happen in the near future and leave feedback on what you would like to see on the new site!

I have watched the keynotes from Microsoft and Intel on CES.

First on to Microsoft, they had of course a lot of things going on. Much of the keynote was as usual a lot of talking about how good everything was and that especially the xbox 360 was really great.

Windows 7 had some attention and it seems to be quite a popular OS and will probably continue to grow during the whole of 2010. I haven’t yet tested Windows 7 but I’m thinking about maybe having both Vista and Windows 7 before deciding to convert. Windows 7 have multi touch support which also showed as Microsoft will launch together with other companies as what they call Slatepc’s. They are meant to be for e-reading, surfing and entertainment on the go.

Microsoft also expressed that they will continue to develop Bing Microsoft’s search engine with more functions as for example Bing maps which let you go to 3D in street view. But some critique to this is a lot of areas in the world it doesn’t give a 3d-view since there are not enough satellite information. Focus is as always USA for Microsoft but it will continue to expand across the world more and more as seen with the Xbox 360.

Talking about Xbox 360 Microsoft will launch the new “controller” which they call Project Natal this holiday in 2010. It is not really a controller in the ordinary way. It is more of a camera that let’s you control the movements on the screen with your own body. I think this is quite exciting since it is a different way to control your game. But since Nintendo launched Wii I don’t think it’s such a big improvement yet. It is like playing a Wii but with a bit more moving your body and without controls in your hands. But I hope they improve it and make it more interactive as seen in previous demos of Natal, but the future will show…

Intel’s keynote was a lot about computer processors of course launching their new 32 nanometers with 1 billion transistors! Intel really seems to be hard at working on improving processors. If they succeed they will be a big name in tech industry with new 3d-televions coming and as well as more advanced computer rendering which takes a lot of processing power. The fourth coming Shrek movie requires 9x the amount of calculations for computers as the first one did.

This was a bit about CES so far and stay tuned for more tomorrow.
