The Web Science Trust board has invited me to present the hi:project at its meeting in Southampton today.
I’m excited, of course, and particularly reassured to be going in with the support and good wishes of our nascent community. In fact, your belief in the hi:project vision is so important that I’m leading with a good old-fashioned handout portraying the various facets of the project, each endorsed with one or two champions’ statements picked from the growing number on our website.
You can view the handout and presentation below.
This afternoon I’m representing the hi:project at a SOCIAM event. SOCIAM is a five-year partnership between researchers from Southampton, Oxford and Edinburgh Universities, led by Professor Sir Nigel Shadbolt, dedicated to the theory and practice of Social Machines. I have the pleasure of joining Daniel Weitzner and John Taysom for a panel on the topic of “Privacy in the age of social machines.” (Post-event update: the privacy panel consisted Daniel, Dr Claudia Pagliari, Dr Kieron O’Hara and me.)
