May Conferences

I am frustrated. There are some really interesting conferences and workshops coming up in May, but I am here in Buffalo for graduation. Jamie (my partner) is graduating from law school, and I want to be here for that, and as the director of the MI program, I need to be here to see our graduates off. That means I’m missing some neat conferences.

May 6: New Media Education and Its Discontents, NYC. I think I’m going to make this one. Some of the pedagogical issues range beyond education in art and media departments.

May 14-15: Social Software in the Academy, USC. The first of these was an interesting workshop, and I am looking forward to seeing what comes out of this one. I’m also bummed because there are quite a few people who will probably be there that I have wanted to meet f2f. (Though I may be there “in spirit.”)

May 19-21: Banff New Media Institute invited me to a cool looking summit “Bodies in Play: Shaping and Mapping Mobile Applications.” I don’t find anything on this on the web, so I shall remain mum while they shape their message. Really wish I could make this one.

May 20-22: Online Deliberation 2005, at Stanford. This looks to be amazingly cool, and I have something that fits so nicely, but again, bad timing.

May 26-30: International Communication Association, NYC. I’ve got three papers in this year, but I am second author on all of them (grad students as primary), so I thought seriously about not going. But, it’s an excuse to spend a few days in the city, chat with some folks I haven’t seen for a while, and I didn’t go last year, so I probably will make this one.

    See now, what we need to do is to start having cool conferences here in upstate NY. That way, people in other parts of the country can gaze upon *us* with envy…

    Maybe in August, when upstate NY is the “cool” place to be.

    As a life-long upstate New Yorker, it’s always a cool place to be. Especially in January, when the temperature is well south of zero.

    hey Alex, would enjoy seeing you at ICA this year, and how about a grad school reunion, of sorts? Anyone else going from UW? and hearty congrats to Jamie.

    M: Absolutely. Once the full program is up, let’s set a meeting time up.

    Buffalo is also doing an open house suite thingy, and you are, of course, welcome to join us for that. No wings involved; at least not if I have any say in it :).
