In Search of a New Admin for the Hearth 01/17/2012
The Hearth isn't just flickering - the fire is out. As much as it pains me, I have to admit that I just don't have the time to run the Hearth, and it is time to pass the flint and tinder to someone else.
What Would You Have to Do?
We've already made some great strides in moving the Carnival to a blog with a feed and reconfiguring the posting schedule. But we need someone to take up the day-to-day administrative duties. If you're interested, please send an email to comments [at]anthropologyinpractice.com and answer the following questions:

Four Stone Hearth 119: Refiring the Hearth 10/01/2011
Krystal D'Costa hosts the hearth's refiring at Anthropology in Practice:
Four Stone Hearth is the anthropology blog carnival. It owes its origin to Martin Rundkvist of Aardvarchaeology, who administered the site for four years before passing the torch to Afarensis. The Hominin requested a temporary host a few months ago while he dealt with some health problems, and I volunteered—and the job sort of stuck.
But the carnival has sort of languished recently. Interest has been low despite a few recent rallying attempts, and after polling the anthropology community, some changes were made to make the carnival a bit more media friendly:

Can We Refire the Hearth? 09/23/2011
Unfortunately, the Hearth has gone out. But perhaps there is still a chance to rekindle the fire. I'd like to rally the community to see if we can relaunch Four Stone Hearth, but it will be necessary to institute some changes -- not many, but hopefully enough to breathe some life into this venture:
I'd also like to consider rebranding, which means a new banner. If someone would like to offer their services, please contact us.
Sam Wise of Sorting Out Science is hosting the 120th edition of the anthropology blog carnival. Why not take your morning coffee/tea/whiskey over there for a quick perusal?
Thanks for hosting, Sam! We're in need of future hosts, so contact us if you're interested.

And We Are Live! 06/19/2011
Welcome to the new home of the Four Stone Hearth!
As the web hosting for the existing site was set to expire, it seemed like the right time to move the carnival to a blog setting, where we'll be able to easily implement some of the features you requested in our call for suggestions, such as an RSS Feed.
Afarensis and Krystal D'Costa will be co-administrating the carnival going forward. Please bear with us while we get the house in order, but feel free to make yourself at home. We'd love to hear your suggestions as well.
