Failure to communicate October 2, 2009 email@example.com We all know how hard it is sometimes to communicate with colleagues and the public at large about our research… This, however, I hadn’t considered before:Got this at a biker rally in Hines, Oregon. I like to get tattoos of the major professions I have had in my life. But with the trowel everyone thinks I'm a mason. I have to tell them I am an archaeologist.
