>> a "special honorary mention" category to the Award, targeting
>> realized projects that could be re-embodied within the urban context
>> of the city Seoul.
>> The award-winning projects would be selected by an international

Call for papers
New media, networks and new pedagogies (2006)
:: fibreculture :: has established itself as Australasia¹s leading
discussion of internet theory, culture, and research. The Fibreculture
Journal is a peer-reviewed journal that explores the issues and ideas of
concern and interest to both the Fibreculture network and wider social

These guidelines need to be followed in all cases.
New media, networks and new pedagogies.
It is easy to argue that much of the rhetoric attached to ³new media²
the internet in relation to pedagogy has mistaken quantity for quality.
has been a conversation that has confused the qualitative changes that
new conceptions of media, knowledge, and networks afford with the
quantitative changes beloved of those who confuse teaching and learning
instruction and consumption. These new qualities are the differences
the vector and commodity, blogs and books.
However, imagine if our universities had been invented now. What would
pedagogy be? What form would teaching and learning take? What would
knowledge? Expertise? What forms would this knowledge take?
Taking this as a departure this issue of the Fibreculture Journal
those working in new media, internet studies, education, and cognate
disciplines to discuss the strengths and celebrate the possibilities
new media and its networks affords teaching and learning. The emphasis
this issue is not on the criticism or description of existing models and
paradigms but to invite the exploration and celebration of new
possibilities, real or imagined. What new knowledge formations should
be? How would they be taught? How could they assessed (if at all)? What
critical academic work, and in what forms, would our students be

hi all -
in march stella mentioned that her application to creative new zealand
was successful, and that part of the proposal was for the development of
a proper ada website, one that can feed into the work done on the
ada_list, and hopefully provide something genuinely useful and valuable
to the ada community. this email is just a brief description of the new
setup and proposed development now that the wheels are turning a bit.
the ada website domain will be http://ada.org.nz/, hosted through
dreamhost.com which gives us 3.8 gigabytes (!) of space for many many
file uploads. but the mailing list address will remain unchanged,
unless you wish to post to ada_list(a)ada.org.nz which will forward to
the same place.
what follows is a description of the proposed development (sans geek-
speak). some of the details are missing for now because they will
hopefully be a nice suprise when it's live. since this development is
for YOU if there are any suggestions or modifications that will
make it more useful or cooler before the development starts then email
me on- or off-list. -- although the following isn't firmly locked in
place, it kind of is .. there's only so much money for this round of
development, this is like a 'stage 1' .. any major new suggestions i
will file away for the next person who needs to develop in the future.
install a slashdot / blog-style discussion on server
implement a slashdot / blog / forum-style discussion to take place
through the ada website. posts to the ada_list will appear on the
website, and posts will be able to be made through the website.
posters through the website would have the option of also sending
the article to the ada_list (and therefore also the website) or just
the website. the idea is a full, mutually _unexclusive_ mirroring
between the list and the website.
email addresses would always remain hidden, and database searches would
benefits would include pushing the preoccupations of the ada_list
moreso to the www, making posts findable, and allowing non-list
subscribers to read and participate (tho if this shows itself to be an
arse it will change).
an article directory
implement an online library of articles posted by visitors, arranged by
category. posted articles could optionally also be sent to the ada_list and
therefore be mirrored on the discussion board (see above), though the article
directory would be viewed as a separate section -- the posted articles would
remain visible and accessible over time (unlike the discussion board, where
articles would successively be pushed to the back).
articles posted to the directory could include -symposium notes, -
artists' statements, -lectures, such as artspace's easy listening
series, -technical how-tos, such as adam hyde's article on streaming
audio from a server, -or previously published material, such as helen
varley-jamieson's article on new zealanders earning money from the net-
based arts. there will be someone who will act as an article gatherer to
ensure this grows as potential articles become available, though the
idea would be for articles to posted by visitors.
further categories could be nominated.
images, video, pdfs and audio could be posted by themselves or to supplement an
articles in the directory would be protected by a creative
articles would be searchable by author, subject or article text.
readers could append comments to an article, with the option of also
having their comments sent to the ada_list.
benefits would include an ongoing and organically growing repository of
discussion and files relevant to the digital arts community. resources
would be permanent and findable. entries would continue to be expanded
or modified by successive commentary. the article directory could be a
central site for people to find resources for digital art in nz.
collaborative link directory
contributors would choose bookmarks from their browser and upload them
to the website, to create a community-driven directory of website links.
links would be uploaded to existing 'bookmark folders', or categories,
or the visitor could create new categories as required, and multiple
levels of sub-categories.
a search function would allow people to search for links by title, url
or previous owner.
cross-editing of works
articles, text-based art and files would be posted and edited, and then
modified by visitors to the website wiki-style. in addition to the free
editing of text, files could be uploaded in response, which could then
be deleted, downloaded, edited or re-uploaded by other people.
this would be independent of the discussion board or article directory
and their database, and postings or modifications would not be sent to
benefits could include an organic growth of material. it could allow
for the dissemination of text and media to occur through an open
people could also use it to host files, though ... no media would
ultimately be safe from editing or deletion.
outcomes could include communally authored works of text and linked
media, available to be used by other artists and visitors to the website
under a creative commons licence, and a site to experiment without
(the server would automate weekly backups of text and media.)
would anyone use rss feeds from the website if they were implemented?
The deadline for the submission of research proposals for the
Researchers in Residence Program is August 31, 2005.
The Daniel Langlois Foundation is offering two research grants to
allow researchers to work at the Foundation's Centre for Research and
Documentation (CR+D) in Montreal. Individuals wishing to submit a
research proposal should read the program guidelines carefully and
send their proposal by mail or e-mail prior to August 31, 2005.
