<nettime-ann> [ann] Mediamatic Workshop on Social Tagging


Last chance to register for the Mediamatic Mobtagging 
workshop, 15 and 16 February! Reduced Price: EUR 200,-

Four great speakers (see below) present, analyse and 
discuss the current practice and impact of social tagging, 
or Mobtagging.

The world wide web turns into a social sphere, and social 
tagging is one of the key expontents of this development. 
It allows web users to specify, index, search and 
especially share information on their own terms. In this 
2-day workshop we will explore the inner workings and 
social effects of Mobtagging, and look into the changing 
relation between users and information from the physical 
and the virtual world. Drawing on the expertise of the 
spreakers, participants will develop social tagging 
scenario's that combine the latest ideas and tools.

* Jyri Engström (FI) (designer and co-founder of Aula, 
Helsinki's innovative media society) will discuss why some 
social network services work and others don't (or: why 
only people are not enough for a social network).

* Andy Smith (USA) (co-developer of Flock, The Social 
Browser) presents the latest version of Flock, the browser 
that includes social tagging in its core browser 

* Duncan Speakman (UK) (videoartist and organisor of the 
first european conference on videoblogging) will discuss 
social tagging and RSS as the engines of videoblogging.

* Ulla-Maaria Mutanen (FI) (inventor of the ThingLink and 
industrial designer) will go into the cultural functions 
of metadata, databases, unique identifiers and ThingLinks.
