Missing blogs?

If you scroll down on this page, you will see a list of English-language blogs that cover social media and another list of Swedish-language blogs that do the same.

These lists were compiled by last year's students. Is there anything missing? Is there a blog that you read and that you would like to recommend? If you have a suggestions, just comment on this blog post and tell us what it is.

Lecture at Sth. University about (social) media and political life

Political science professor Lance Bennet will hold an installation lecture at Stockholm University on October 29 (13.00-15.00 in lecture hall D9), "Political life in late modern society: Communication, citizenship and participation in a time of institutional decline". Although the title doesn't say anything about (social) media, they play a prominent role in his lecture.
Here is an invitation (poster) and this is part of what he will talk about (full text here):

"[...] as society becomes organized around flexible social networks dominated by lifestyle and consumer values. The emerging order is organized through communication technologies that operate largely outside conventional mass media systems. These changes are accompanied by a new politics of lifestyle values shared across social networks


This transformation of citizen identity and political relationships leads to creative uses of information and communication technologies to organize collective action in the now familiar transnational networks that address increasingly interrelated and complex aspects of environment, trade and economic justice, human and labor rights, and corporate power and responsibilities."

I have heard Lance talk before and I think the lecture will be very interesting. I will unfortunately not have the opportunity to attend myself but hope some of you will go.

Welcome to the DM2578 course blog

I don't yet know for sure how many students will take the course "DM2578 Social Media Technologies" that starts soon (end of October 2010).

However, we will together know about or come across many different examples of innovative social media services and programs during the course.

This blog is where you post them (and where you can read the suggestions of last year's students)! All students will be invited to become contributors (who can post blog entries) here, so do feel free to post whatever you think is related to the course, to the cutting edge of and the future of Social Media Technologies.

Also feel free to check out others' suggestions and also post comments to other posts.

If you read this message already before the course starts, please either leave a comment here, or send of an e-mail to me (Daniel Pargman) with the e-mail address you want to use throughout the course (choose carefully, it can be either a private or a professional (student) mail address - but I don't want you to change later). I will then send you an invitation to become a contributor to this blog!
