    Hi All. I wanted to invite you to two upcoming events celebrating the publication of The Social Media Reader which I edited — CC licensed (with a complicated back story on that, actually).


    The Social Media Reader, is a collection of essays exploring the rise of a participatory culture that blurs the boundaries between creators and audiences, will be published this month by NYU Press. The book features key essays from the major authors in the field, including Chris Anderson, Yochai Benkler, danah boyd, Henry Jenkins, Lawrence Lessig, Tim O’Reilly, Jay Rosen, Clay Shirky, and Siva Vaidhyanathan.

    There will be two launch events in the coming weeks:

    Sunday, March 18, 2PM
    22-25 Jackson Ave.
    Long Island City, NY 11101

    I will be joined by Memefactory’s Patrick Davison and artist Brad Troemel to discuss social media art and a theory of Internet memes from Hamster Dance to Advice Dog. For more info, please see the event page on the MoMA PS1 site.

    Powerhouse Arena
    April 2nd, 7PM
    37 Main Street
    Brooklyn, NY 11201

    I will be joined by Ceci Moss and David Horvitz to discuss social media and its relationship to art on and off the web, articulating a theory of post-internet art, and creating and replicating a few memes in the process. So many memes!
