Technology Mediated Social Participation Workshop at PARC next week

Earlier this year PARC and Univ. of Maryland approached NSF with the idea of funding two workshops on Technology-Mediated Social Participation. NSF eagerly provided funding and simultaneously started a new program on Social-Computational Systems (SoCS).

Technology Mediated Social Participation
WEST COAST WORKSHOP & PANEL - Dec 10-11 @ PARC

With the goal of drawing up a strong scientific research agenda and educational recommendations necessary for a new era of social participation technologies, PARC is hosting the first of two workshops designed to bring together a diverse set of researchers from a variety of disciplines.

The West Coast Workshop will focus on three major themes:


  • Integration of theory: from individual behavior to collective action
  • Social intelligence and capital: understanding connections
  • Research challenges: shareable infrastructure, ethics, and protection

In addition, Peter Pirolli and Jenny Preece will be hosting a special PARC Forum on Technology Mediated Social Participation on Thursday December 10, featuring panelists Ben Shneiderman, Amy Bruckman, Bernardo Huberman, and Cameron Marlow. The Forum will be streamed and recorded as well. We'll be live-testing/ soft launching the PARC Forum livestream at: http://www.justin.tv/parcinc

Check out extensive blog post by Peter here.

Twitter hashtag is #TMSP.

Behind the Scenes: Crowdsourcing ways to SAVE tax dollars

If you've got two million employees, asking all of them for suggestions about how to do things better can be a little bit like trying to drink from a firehose. And while that might be intimidating for even the most high-tech of companies to consider, the challenge gets tougher if the organization you're trying to improve is the Federal Government. So we're excited to take a behind-the-scenes look at the President's SAVE Award initiative. This initiative is about soliciting ideas from federal employees for how to save taxpayer dollars, but there are some larger lessons from SAVE that can show...
