Open Educational Resources Initiative Meeting

Visited lovely Half-Moon Bay for a workshop informing the Hewlett foundation on their future funding strategy for the Open Educational Resources Program (see Hewlett OER - Atkins, Seely Brown, Hammond Report).

The question was how to develop what they call an Open Participatory Learning Infrastructure. Geof Bowker and I then wrote a report on this workshop.

Presentation at Enriching Scholarship

Along with Tom Finholt I presented on 'Clickwork', 'Crowdsourcing' and New Modes of Public Participation in Science at the May 7th Enriching Scholarship event here at UMich. Here are our powerpoint slides (3MB, no video); the talk will be archived for webcast from the enriching scholarship site.

We were the panel commentators for Bryan Alexander's keynote on Ubiquitous Computing and Gaming.

San Jose, CHI and and CIP meeting

I made a guest appearance at CHI by virtue of its power to draw together various satellite meetings. We had a CIP meeting in San Jose, and the 'NSF Understanding Infrastructure Report' people (Edwards, Jackson, Bowker...) were hosting meetings to get feedback....

Back from Europe

I've finished my grand European academic tour!

I presented a paper on 'Both Ends of Infrastructure' at a workshop in Fribourg, Switzerland on Scientific Practice as Ordinary Action. I presented a talk at the Oxford Internet Institute on 'Strategies of the Long Term in Infrastructure Design'. And I presented a talk at the Virtual Knowledge Studio in Amsterdam entitled 'Tensions in Long Term Design.'

I hada great time; I don't care what other people say, the Europeans are lovely people.

There is a webcast of my talk at Oxford, but I won't link to it. Too easy.
