Much has happened during the weeks I was in school, and I am trying to catch up, albeit slowly. But here are a few tidbits, if you weren't already aware:
1) The call for nominations for the first annual SNCR awards has been announced. You can read the press release here. The deadline for entries is Sept. 8, 2006. The online submission form can be found at http://www.sncr.org/awards/use/awardssubmission/submission.html .
2) The call for papers for the first edition of the SNCR Journal of New Communications Research has also been announced. Those interested should submit a project abstract of approximately 500 words via email to journal_submission [at] sncr.org by August 1, 2006.
I certainly hope you choose to participate in these efforts.
In the near future, I will be writing more about my school experiences, describing the many fantastic lectures and speakers we had, as well as sharing some insights. My thesis topic was accepted, so you will be hearing more about digital identity (from a philosophical point of view) over the coming months. I am still trying to catch up on things here, and preparing for another 2 weeks on the road, so posting will be light until the second week of July. Then there will likely be a flood of information coming your way.
I look forward to more interactions with all of you!
