Our research librarian just sent a list of all the books the University Library bought for Digital Culture in 2011. There are 97 books on the list, which says something about how fast this field is growing, and browsing the titles I really wish I had time to read them all. Sorry about the plain text and truncated titles – if you’re interested you’ll easily find more info about the books at your library or bookstore. I <3 our library!

Most of these books are new, some are older, and of course we already had a lot of books before 2011. Leave a comment if you see glaring omissions and I’ll suggest the library buy those books as well.

Do people flock to talks about ChatGPT because they are scared?

Whenever I give talks about ChatGPT and LLMs, whether to ninth graders, businesses or journalists, I meet people who are hungry for information, who really want to understand this new technology. I’ve interpreted this as interest and a need to understand – but yesterday, Eirik Solheim said that every time […]
