Digital Studies Group

The Digital Studies Group (DSG) brings together CUNY faculty members, researchers, and doctoral students interested in a broad range of intellectual, cultural, economic, legal, and pedagogical issues related to the growing impact of digital media on the ways we read, think, teach, learn and entertain ourselves in the United States and across the globe. Beginning in fall 2009, the seminar will meet periodically at The CUNY Graduate Center to hear presentations of ongoing digital media research work, to discuss traditional and online texts on digital media issues, and to explore new digital media approaches to cultural production and to questions of teaching and learning.

Request for Participation: Book of the Web

  • My friend and collaborator Adam Hyde of FLOSS Manuals is putting together a big collaborative book sprint for May, and is looking for input to shape the project, and potential collaborators/writers. Full info below.

    I have worked with the FM project on http://www.collaborative-futures.org/ and other books, and it is a really great project and a great process. I recommend it.

    hey

    Was wondering if I can entice you into something…If you have a minute can you have a look at this: https://wiki.mozilla.org/Bookoftheweb

    Its something I am putting together with the Mozilla folks. We are going to do a mega sprint – 40 or 50 people in Toronto to write a book to help campaigners create campaigns to get people more involved with the web…*very* interested in your feedback and thoughts on this – is it clear? Is it missing anything? How can we improve the pitch? Does it make you want to get into the process of making this?.

    We are also looking for some direct input into the lists forming at:

    Any time you have to ping me with feedback or to enter into into the secrets and ingredients lists would be mucho appreciatedo
