I’m presenting my book Blogging at our university bookshop, Studia, today at 2:15 pm. If you’re in town you’re very welcome to come! I’m going to talk for 25 minutes and Studia’s serving snacks of some kind, so I think it’ll be good. (I always appreciate snacks.) Oh, it’ll be in Norwegian.

    Good presentation, it could have been longer though. It’s a far too interesting topic to be short about it. I guess I have to read your book, now 😉

    Thanks! But who ARE you, Mad Mullah?

  4. […] Yesterday, after the book presentation, I met two of these studetns. Kristine Ludvigsen is studying pedagogy and finishing her Master’s degree on learning in Second Life. She had lots of questions about how to think about ethics in an online environment – she had permission from all her informants, but as the interviews had taken place in Second Life, sometimes other people had turned up in the middle of an interview – or someone simply walked past in the background. Her final paper is going to be a video paper, so she was wondering whether she could use material in the video paper despite there being someone in the background of the image who had’t formally given permission? I think it depends on the situation – but it does show the trickiness of online work. Kristine has already looked at the AoIR’s ethics guidelines: I think she’d find Charles Ess’s new book Digital Media Ethics useful – I only just saw it this morning and will certainly buy a copy. Charles Ess has worked on ethics on the internet for years. […]

    Bwahaha! The Mad Mullah is the alter ego of your neighbourhood’s friendly administrator 😉

    warm regards from tropical Shoreditch,

    OK, just answered my own question. Well done on that.

  10. Jill Walker Rettberg

    Hey, Craig! Long time no see. Glad to see you found it 🙂

  11. […] Tidligere i v?•r presenterte Jill sin siste bok, “Blogging” p?• studia. Etterp?• ble Eva og jeg sittende ?• prate med Jill og Kristine som diskuterte hvordan det var ?• sitte alene p?• sitt institutt med sine studier p?• sosiale medier. Dette kunne jeg nikke gjenkjennende til, og fortalte Jill at jeg nok burde ha kontaktet henne i l??pet av skriveprosessen min, men at jeg oppdaget henne, og skj??nte det litt for sent. Paradoksalt nok satt jeg mye alene og skrev om sosiale medier store deler av 2008. Jeg fulgte en forskningsgruppe ved mitt eget institutt, men savnet noen utveksle ideer med noen som delte mitt engasjement for nye medier. Jill var rask med iverksettelse av ideen, blogget om den allerede dagen etter. Etter en m?•neds tid var f??rste m??te p?• plass. […]

Four visual registers for imaginaries of machine vision

I’m thrilled to announce another publication from our European Research Council (ERC)-funded research project on Machine Vision: Gabriele de Setaand Anya Shchetvina‘s paper analysing how Chinese AI companies visually present machine vision technologies.

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 […]
