blogtalk: series of ten minute talks on social software
[Kathleen’s post on this session is much better than mine…]
Adolfo Estallela – blogs from communicative to connective artefacts
Web 1.0: Social bounded situations. Social interactions were held through text and images. Technology was just a context. E.g. chat. Web 2.0 different: can’t understand this if we continue to distinguish between content and channel, medium and message. (Is this really the case? Aren’t medium and message always blended? Perhaps I misunderstood him – “infrastructure does for you the work of social connections” (??)

Jan Schmidt: information-, identiy- and relationship management.
There’s a book on the registration table by Schmidt that looks interesting but it’s in German and I can’t really read German… If you can you might want to find it, it’s called Weblogs: Eine kommunikationssoziologische Studie. (Sorry, that’s all the liveblogging I can offer…)
Oh. Now we’re supposed to do sort of open technology conference talks while wandering aroudn the room looking at posters. I wonder how this’ll work.
