I’m off to Digital Arts and Culture 2005 today! I’m presenting my paper about our fascination with representing ourselves online, both in photographic self-portraits and, say, in blogs. We’ve been asked not to publish our papers online until after the conference, so I’ll hold off on that until I get home.

There are lots of interesting papers, and if I can get online I’m likely to post from there. Actually, maybe I’ll contribute to the conference Wiki instead.

    Oh, the full papers have been handed out to all the participants in a very nice paper conference proceedings, so the read-aloud possibility is entirely, well, possible. Except the paper’s far too long to be read 🙂

    I enjoyed reading your paper, Jill; the focus on both textual and visual self-images is thought-provoking, I bet you’re going to pursue this line of work. I also enjoyed Viviane Serfaty’s book on blogs, in fact I wrote a review here:
    By the way, here’s a self-portrait of mine, one you won’t find in The Mirror Project!
    Thanks for sharing your paper, Jill, and congratulations.

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 […]
