This morning I presented part of my Phd thesis work during the International Symposium on Media Innovations at the University of Oslo, Norway. As the picture (source here) shows, there was a panel discussion afterwards – that’s me second from the left, way back in the shadows.
Just booked my flight tickets to go to the annual ICA conference – this time taking place in Phoenix, AZ, at the end of may. Last year’s Boston ICA was my first experience with this huge conference – there are just too many interesting sessions going on to be able to catch them all. This [...]
Yesterday, I got back home from the 12th Internet Research conference. Just in time to see one of my favorite guitarists Kurt Rosenwinkel play a show here in Uppsala, by the way. Following last years conference in Gothenburg, IR12 was held in Seattle – a city I had never visited before. I quite liked the [...]
I’m at the University of Akureyri in Iceland for the NordMedia 2011 conference. This truly is a beautiful country – I could tell from flying in from Reykjavik. With both of my presentations done, I’m looking forward to my flight home tomorrow… It feels like I haven’t been home for ages. If you ever visit [...]
Just arrived in Helsinki for participation ECIS 2011. Last year, I had the opportunity to attend the ECIS doctoral consortium when it was hosted in South Africa – this year, the conference is in Finland… A little bit closer to Sweden.

I’m at Arlanda Airport, waiting for my flight to Boston, by way of Reykjavik. The last couple of days have been interesting – the ashcloud generated by the icelandic volcano Grímsvötn has kept me on my toes as to whether or not I would be able to get to Boston and the ICA conference. As [...]
After two months as a visiting PhD student at the School of Communication and Information, Rutgers University, I am now at home in Uppsala again. I’ve had a great time here – both from a professional and a social point of view. I would very much like to thank the people at the school, particularly [...]
The wait is over – results from the review process for ECIS 2011 were due on march 1st, but I got word today. However, it was worth waiting for – a paper based on my collaboration with associate professor Hallvard Moe at the University of Bergen has been accepted for presentation at the conference. This [...]
Just as I was about to leave for Rutgers and the School of Communication and Information, I received word that my submisson for ICA 2011 had been accepted. I will be presenting part of my research on audience use of interactive features on online newspapers. I’m looking forward to an interesting conference, and to spending [...]
