Internet Research 12

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 […]

NordMedia 2011

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 […]

In Helsinki for ECIS 2011

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. My presentation was originally scheduled for the session starting at 11.00 today. However, since […]

Noam Chomsky at ICA 2011

Noam Chomsky delivering the closing adress at ICA 2011. To sum up, you might say that Chomsky has essentially given the same speech for 40 years now. It’s a good speech though – and, unfortunately, continuously necessary.

Off to ICA… or?

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 […]

back home

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 […]

Hyvä Suomi

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. […]

Accepted for ICA 2011

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 […]

ICIS 2010

It’s almost december, which means I’ll soon be heading west to St Louis and the ICIS 2010 conference. I will present my work on online newspapers during the poster session (poster available via SlideShare). I have also been admitted to the OASIS pre-conference workshop, where I will give a short presentation regarding my current […]

On my way to Göteborg

Seated on the 06.00 train from Stockholm to Göteborg (Gothenburg, GBG, whatever) and the Internet Research 11 conference. Although I don’t have a presentation during the actual conference itself, I will present some tentative results from my two studies regarding the recent 2010 Swedish election during the Evaluating Social Media pre-conference workshop.
