OCRE at the AIA/SCS in San Francisco

Andrew Meadows, one of the project managers for the Online Coins of the Roman Empire project, was in San Francisco today to present on a panel of NEH-funded projects in the archaeological realm, as part of the larger AIA/SCS conference. It generated a string of tweets (and replies) from Eric Kansa of OpenContext, which you can read at Andy's presentation is more or less represented on Google Docs: The presentation is effectively a summary of the state of the digital world of numismatics, including involvement in Pelagios and a crowdsourced coin identification project with MicroPasts to facilitate future integration of Portable Antiquities Scheme coins into OCRE.
