Vincent Brown’s “Talking Pyramids” Website Has a New Address!

   Posted by: Shemsu Sesen

vincent-tabVincent Brown’s website, Talking Pyramids, has changed addresses, so please update your links!  The new address is:  http://www.talkingpyramids.com/

If you have read any of the reference articles on Em Hotep!, particularly anything having to do with pyramids, then you have most likely come across Talking Pyramids in my Further Reading section at the end of the articles.  Vincent’s network of websites is always one of the online resources I check when writing a reference piece. 

Did I say network of websites?

Talking Pyramids is just one of several online resources Vincent offers.  Check out Ancient Egyptian Pyramids Network for Pyramid Texts Online, YouTube videos you will want to see, the Pyramid of Man website, and resources for hieroglyphs and learning ancient Egyptian. 

Vincent offers up-to-date news, book reviews, and thoughtful and informed commentary on Talking Pyramids, so if you haven’t been there yet, you should drop in!

Gee, thanks a lot Shemsu!

That’s very kind of you to plug my sites. I only asked you to update your link and you do a full post on all my websites!

Thank you.

Vincent.

Thank you, Shemsu, for the update on Vincent’s Web sites.

You are right, Vincent’s network is fantastic, there one can find a myriad of priceless information. I wonder how he can deal so successfully with such a huge amount of complex subjects.

And thank you, Vincent, I’ve been learning a lot on AE from you. Reading your work every day is a source of inexhaustible pleasure for me.

Thanks to Jean-Pierre, Jose, and Vincent for taking time out of your very busy schedules to contribute here. I have come to know all of you and know that your time is a very valuable commodity!

There is an old saying in the media business—freedom of the press is limited to those who own a press. The Internet in general and the World Wide Web in particular have made that old saying largely obsolete. For better or worse, anyone with an internet connection, now widely available for free in everything from cafés to Interstate rest stops, can broadcast information to the entire world instantly. Even tyrants tremble before Twitter, as evidenced during the Iranian elections.

We are fortunate to have an ever-growing community of writers involved in covering and exploring Egyptology and the news related to that field. Note that I did not refer to us as “bloggers,” as I notice nobody else did above! I am increasingly finding that work irksome, for a variety of reasons I will not get into here. Suffice it to say that if you are spending more than an hour on an entry, citing sources, and bothering to find relevant visual media that is public domain or under a Creative Commons license, or actually producing your own photos and graphics, then you have gone above and beyond blogging.

There is another old saying in the media business—never make an enemy of someone who buys ink by the barrel. This has also been made largely passé by the Internet Age. For a relatively small investment you can spread your words to the Four Corners, and keep them there more or less permanently. As a part of the so-called “new media” we help keep checks and balances on those who fall within the domain of our interest, namely, Egyptology. This is where our independence serves us—nobody can threaten to revoke our permit to excavate, or to rattle our editor’s cage.

Tyrants beware!
