Slides from my IAMCR confpres on Facebook groups and audiences

Update: Slides are now withdrawn – but you are welcome to contact me via email if you want to see them and/or read the working paper, on which the presentation is based.

As promised in my presentation, here are my slides from the presentation “Publics for a day? The affective “audiences” on Facebook” with some graphs and stats regarding the emergence, posting patterns, life cycle etc of three Danish Facebook groups, created as reaction to some major news stories. Since this is work in progress, the slides will only be available until Sunday July 25th, after which they will be withdrawn, as I want to turn my findings and the paper on this subject (which should be available in the IAMCR2010 “proceedings”)  into a proper journal paper soon… Comments much welcome :).

Residential Aviz, Porto, Portugal is closed down by official authorities

Im posting this to help other travellers to the city of Porto, Portugal. If you consider booking the small hotel “Residential Aviz”,  Av Rodriguez de Freitas 451, it has been closed by the official authorities and you will be reallocated to another hotel on arrival, have to walk there (10 min), and might risk ending up in a worse hotel of lesser quality (I was in fact taken from the replacement hotel to a 3rd “residential” with 2 star ranking, on the 4th floor with no elevator and the worst bed I ever slept in). Just so you be warned!

The attitude of the female receptionist in Aviz was the most arrogant Ive ever experienced in a hotel, not a word of excuse, just rude instructions to the replacement hotel! They dont deserve to get any future customers. They will likely reopen but there was no indication when, when I was there.

Undersøgelse om brug af Facebook-grupper

Jeg er for øjeblikket i gang med at undersøge, hvad der får folk til at melde sig ind i Facebook-grupper og hvad de håber at få ud af det. Derfor har jeg lavet en lille spørgeskemaundersøgelse, som jeg håber du måske vil besvare, hvis du er blevet henvist til denne hjemmeside. Hvis du deltager, har du også mulighed for at vinde 2 billetter til Nordisk Films Biografer.

Deltag i undersøgelsen ved at klikke på dette link:

På forhånd tak for din hjælp 🙂

Talking about web 2.0 (in Danish) on webmuseum.dk

Webmuseum.dk is, to my knowledge, a unique endeavour, initiated by my longtime colleague and friend Ida Engholm. The site, now hosted at the Danish Museum for Art and Design, is still under development and is meant to function as a continous online museum documenting the webdesign (and content genre) history of the www.  Currently in Danish only, but meant to exist in an English version too. It already holds a lot of both international and Danish websites, dating back to the early 1990’s.  Just like an offline museum, webmuseum.dk is also meant to host regular curated special exhibitions. The first exhibition (in Danish) is already online, titled “From Alpha to Beta” it presents select turnings points in the history of the development of the www, through the use of “expert interviews” and screenshots. I’m one of the people talking about web 2.0 – you can find my and the other web 2.0 videos on this page/”room” in the museum.

“Skyd en bog” seminar: slides og links

UK summary: links and slides from a talk in Danish on social media, youth and storytelling, that I gave this week.

Onsdag og torsdag denne uge var jeg en af foredragsholderne på et spændende lille seminar afholdt af firmaet Lommefilm.dk, der producerer mobilfilmskonkurrencer for børn og unge i offentligt regi.  Jeg talte om digitale sociale medier, storytelling og de unge brugere for en god gruppe af tilhørere, bestående primært af bibliotekarer og skolelærere.

Her er mine slides fra torsdagens oplæg: Lommefilmsslides (lidt ændret fra onsdag, men stort set det samme)

Og her er links til de  af mine artikler, jeg lister på den sidste slide:
Telling and Sharing? Understanding mobile stories and the future of narrative (om bl.a. Getmoving.dk)
Digital formidling til børn i det sociale nets tidsalder” in Digital kulturformidling – børn og forskere har ordet. Kulturarvsstyrelsen, March 2007. ISBN 987-87-91298-29-5. Publikationen kan downloades her.
Mobity-survey (om danske unges sociale netværkssitebrug) kan downloades fra http://www,mobity.dk
Designværkstedet bor på http://design.emu.dk (her skulle min artikel om statusupdates på Facebook blive uploadet marts-april 2010)
