[me] I was educated as a social scientist and work as a interface/interaction designer since 1991. (seeprojects) Currently I run a project on web-based user participation in housing (see parq - german only) and I do the operative management for a research project on LEDs at the Hochschule für Angewandt Kunst, Wien (AIM).
[mission] My scientific work focuses on the Internet as an emerging reality, that is produced by all its users - and not only by companies or designers and programmers. (therefore i called my site realitylab.at ). The Internet like any other media is not a mere reflection of reality but a reality on its own: It represents a new cultural sphere and has its own characteristics with respect to communicative codes and knowledge production. The phenomenon of weblogs show that media are not necesserily pointing to everyday reality and events in "real world"; weblogs are self-referential as well: they point to other weblogs where an event has been already intellectually processed, and the way it has been processed is to certain extent more important than the event itself. This process of self-reference can be found in any vivid system and it produces consciousness and intelligence.
[paper] the blogosphere map (coop with christian langreiter): The interconnectivity of weblogs bear analogy to the way our neuronal system works. If we look at tools like blogstreet (in connection with touchgraph) and expand several nodes in the neighbourhood of a weblog the analogy is amazing: We find a network of processing units. Our concept of the blogosphere map develops this hypothetical factor of analysis a bit further: What if we could see not only a static map but also (neuronal) activitities on it: e.g. the spread of news and thoughts within the neighbourhood of a weblog. We will present a prototype of it at the blogtalk conference.

My name is Gabriela Avram .
I'm a university lecturer teaching IT-related disciplines at AISTEDA, a young Romanian university. I am also responsible for the IT Research Laboratory belonging to the university and I am in charge with international co-operation projects. My main research interests are IT evaluation and Knowledge Management.
I must confess I am a newbie: I just found out what a weblog is eight months ago!
I'm giving a presentation at BlogTalk on our own experience with using weblogs. The diglit K-log evolved from our need to keep track of what we and our other partners did, said or read about, within an educational project funded by the EU. Later on, it became a sort of meeting place for the community of practice created through this project, with specific interest in improving the situation of digital literacy.

The digital age arrives with a set of big challenges for traditional mainstream media, most of them could be understood as new paradigms: blogging represents the ultimate challenge for the old communication system.
The media and communication landscape emerging from this changes is called eCommunication and ten are the paradigms proposed to explain them and to examine the crucial role of blogs in the new scenario.
The user becomes the axis of communication process, the content is the identity of media, multimedia is the new language, real time is the only time, hypertext is the grammar , and knowledge is the new name of information.

My name is Andrius Kulikauskas.
In 1998, I founded "Minciu Sodas" http://www.ms.lt , an open laboratory for serving and organizing independent thinkers around the world. We bring together our individual projects around a shared value of "caring about thinking". "I blog at Ecademy" http://www.ecademy.com/module.php?mod=blog&op=view&uid=21942. Thank you (tentatively!) to "XpertWeb" http://xpertweb.com for (tentatively!) sponsoring my work. My presentation, "The Algebra of Copyright" http://www.ecademy.com/node.php?id=5252 , will consider what happens to micro-content when it is taken out of one licensed work and embedded into another licensed work. If we all casually violate copyright laws, then we allow the large publishers to claim that "people are thieves" and so gain strict protection for their "intellectual property" and even the means for distributing such. I will explore how "Creative Commons" http://www.creativecommons.org licenses are used, will promote an "except as noted" clause as in "Primarily Public Domain" http://www.primarilypublicdomain.org , and invite all to join this investigation at our group for "development of the information commons through the Chaordic Commons" http://groups.yahoo.com/group/ChaordicIP/ .
