DML Conference in Long Beach this week

I’m looking forward to the Digital Media and Learning conference this week in Long Beach. I’m giving a short talk on Friday at 11am, as part of a panel titled “The Social Dimensions of Emerging Platforms.” My talk, “Scaling the Social: Scalemaking, Friendship, and Social Media in Berlin,” will consider how Facebook and Skype facilitate communication and social networks at multiple geographic scales, bringing together local, regional, national, and translocal relationships in the same digital spaces. I’m also excited about the Ignite Talks, which look interesting!

welcome to style over content

informed by my research as a cultural anthropologist, i write about social and digital media, popular culture, and how social worlds are changing in relation to new communications technologies. why is facebook so popular, despite all the privacy concerns? why does the digital feel so much more immaterial than other kinds of media? what do youth and young people have to do with new technology? and ultimately, what do our anxieties or aspirations regarding new technologies tell us about ourselves?
