BlogTalk 2.0

I’ve sworn off conferences for 2004. I don’t know if I’ll be able to hold to that, but I did watch the deadline for the International Communication Association come and go, which was a little strange. Perhaps not as strange as failing to deliver an accepted paper at HICSS this January, but that had more to do with the research than a desire to avoid going to Hawaii. IAMCR is in Porto Alegre next summer, and although I would like to go, I think I will hold off until the next meeting (and not just because Buffalo has enough winter already). I’m looking at maybe going to the Association of Internet Researchers meeting in Sussex in October and BlogTalk in Vienna in July. Two others I’m thinking seriously about, 4s and ASIST, seem to run shoulder to shoulder with AoIR, so I may hit one of those instead. But I may just not go. The utility of attending conferences seems inversely proportionate to their size (and often prestige).

    Or I should read my email before posting! :) In re, Liz’s comment, I definitely hope to participate in the Media Ecology meeting in Rochester next year, as well as well as speaking at the Social Network Architectures here at UB. Since these were both relatively local, they won’t require the same sort of planning; i.e., who will feed, care for, teach the spouse, dog, students?

    well barring incident, i’m aiming for 4s, and AoIR, paris and sussex, around 3 weeks apart, i think, so I’ll see if i can just stay in europe prolly.
