OrgCon 2012: Be There or Be relatively disadvantaged in your knowledge of orgcon…

Snappy Title Ahoy!

Yes I shall be attending OrgCon 2012; the shindig put on by The Open Rights Group to discuss many important issues in the sphere of digital rights. If you are able to get to London with relative ease I thoroughly encourage attendance. The primary benefits involve hanging around in the general vicinity of the rather excellent Lawrence Lessig, Cory Doctorow and other well credentialed individuals. Clearly it is the Tech-and-Civil-Liberties-Nerd event of the year so get to it!

If you’ve ever paid for an academic conference you will find the prices pleasantly surprising.

Historical Research Online – Prezi

I had a few requests for access to the presentation I used to deliver my paper at the OII Symposium last week; so here it is in its wizzy glory.

You can use the arrow keys to move back and forth through the set path (the structured way) but also drag around to make your own way through it. Also if you go to ‘More’ you can go full-screen for better viewing.

Enjoy!

Oii: A Decade in Internet Time

I’m in Oxford at the moment at the Oii Symposium ‘A Decade in Internet Time’. It’s been a lot of fun, I got to present my research have some great feedback from interesting people. The paper I presented is available on the SSRN and you can grab a copy if you like. The conference still has a few days left so I’ll try and cobble something insightful (passable) together when I get home.
