This week: PolitCamp 2008!

BarCamp is an international network of user generated conferences — open, participatory workshop-events, whose content is provided by participants — often focusing on early-stage web applications, and related open source technologies, social protocols, and open data formats.
By “open-sourcing” the organizational process (=codifying it in a wiki and making that publicly available), BarCamp seems to have struck a chord. It quickly became a model for user generated conferences in other fields or for more specialized applications, ranging from WordCamp and PodCamp to Seattle Mind Camp, to name a few.

And Graz will feature the first PolitCamp… this week!


PolitiCamp will be a great opportunity to talk about the political dimensions of new communication infrastructures and to meet influential Austrian minds.

Don’t forget to check it out!

Graz celebs: Guess who?

A big Kronen Zeitung (*) ad.
Arnold is authentic. He is strong. He is Styrian (although he currently lives in California and has some weird job)!


(*) The Kronen Zeitung is Austria’s largest newspaper. Its political positioning is social right wing. The Kronen Zeitung has often been accused of abusing its near monopoly to manipulate public opinion. Krone is known for spreading fear and hatred among its readers.


Help to combat online censorship by taking part!

Should be interesting for all of us.
Info from Reporters without borders:

More than 60 cyber-dissidents around the world are currently in prison for expressing themselves online. Something that is fairly simple for anyone to do in most countries is nonetheless banned in 13 of them. You can go to prison for posting your views on a blog or website in China, Tunisia or Egypt, for example. In order to combat this kind of censorship and to make as many people as possible aware of the situation, Reporters Without Borders is for the first time launching a major protest: 24 hours against online censorship. The general public, Internet users, bloggers, journalists, students – everyone is invited to register their opposition to censorship with a simple click.
