I’m going to Ume in Northern Sweden for a couple of days in August to do one of the keynotes at a workshop for PhD students organised by HUMlab. The topic is Interaction In Digital Environments. I visited HUMlab a few years ago, and really enjoyed the people there, and the feel of the lab – though it was a bit dark and cold, I have to admit. This time I’ve been promised northern summer light, and I get to finally meet Stephanie Hendrick, who does really interesting work on blogs, like her work with Lilia Efimova on weblog conversations and communities.

The workshop, btw, is a good deal – interesting people, an interesting place, and while participation is limited, those accepted will have their travel and accomodation paid for. You might want to check it out.

They find that the Chinese machine vision imaginary is global, blue and competitive.  […]
