• May 16, 2007 • Comments (3)

I haven’t had time to write about the SJF panel debate on citizen media the other day, so I was happy to see that Media Culpa and Andreas Aspegren have done the job for me. And a good job too. On the whole it was an odd situation, being in a debate with my employer’s […]

Today the result was released as Geo-stories, a set of geo-tagged photos and film clips brought together as a kind of multimedia story on this site. If the goal was to […]

The BBC is a media company in the forefront when it comes to working with its users, letting them contribute in different ways. One of their projects that I’ve been following for a while is the Manchester blogging project, a pilot study where editors work closely with a community of local bloggers. Last Thursday I […]

EFIT 12 maj 2007

Den här EFIT-dagen blev lite mer varierad än vanligt. Jag är i Värmland och hälsar på Sofie, efter att ha föreläst på Karlstads universitet om medborgarmedia. 00:31 – Sofie och Nova gosar 07:58 – vaknade av att takfönstret släppte in en massa ljus på mig. Jag hade täckt för det vanliga fönstret eftersom jag vaknade […]

Trevlig kväll på Söder

Jag är inne i stan alldeles för sällan, konstaterade jag efter jobbet idag när Sanna och jag skulle kolla i lite butiker vid Skanstull innan det var dags för att träffa Josefine och ta en drink. Jag kände knappt igen något av namnen på butikerna hon nämnde. Och då gillar jag ändå Söder. Men det […]

24h Flickr photo event on May 5

The other day I wrote about photo challenges (in Bloggvärldsbloggen), mentioning the 07_07_07 Flickr photo group, a world-wide challenge to take photos on July 7. Now it looks like Flickr has taken the idea and made it theirs, announcing May 5 to be the date for a 24 hour world-wide photo challenge. What happens around […]

Ålandskryssning med Common

I helgen var jag på finlandskryssning med sju commonister – två hytter. Jag och Kalle delade hytt med Uffe och Anna. I den andra hytten bodde 2mU, Vrom, Hultman och Nicke. Finlandskryssningar är ju alltid lite speciella, men den här var annorlunda för mig eftersom det var första gången jag åkte med Birka. Helt klart […]

Why Jaiku outshines Twitter

I was a bit hesitant yet fascinated when I first started using Twitter. Now I see the form mature and I think microblogging is here to stay. Since Hej!2007, which got me into Jaiku, I’ve been using the service quite a bit, and I am more or less migrating to it from Twitter, though I’m […]
