Internet, Politics, Policy: An Impact Assessment

2010 September 27

Last week, I was fortunate enough to attend the OII conference “Internet, Politics, Policy: An Impact Assessment” in Oxford, UK. It was not only exciting to travel through the channel and through London and the English country side towards Oxford. Most of all, I was looking forward to meet my co-auhtor, François Briatte, with whom I had just completed a second article without ever having had a chance to meet him in person.

I stumbled upon François paper on the programme of the Siegen conference “Social Web – Towards Networked Protest Politics?” he was unable to attend. As our research interests seemed close, I send him an email and before I could think we were collaborating on an article together (you can find the reference in the publication section).

In January 2010, he contacted me via Facebook (we still hadn’t met inbetween) and off we were for a second round of internet-based collaboration. You can find the result here. Any comments are of course more than welcome as it’s still a work in progress we are planning to submit to the Policy and Internet journal.

Thanks to Sylvain Dejean, here you can find a summary of the presentation. And here you can find blog notes taken by Ismael Pena-Lopez during the sessions he attended at the conference.
