Dear all,

this is the spring newsletter from the Institute of Network Cultures, with updates about Winter Camp, Video Vortex and Urban Screens. Furthermore, we're announcing an upcoming event, so Stop Searching, Start Questioning!, and join us at the Society of the Query event in November.

\\\ Winter Camp video interviews online\\\
The Winter Camp meta-group is happy to announce that the video interviews that were conducted during Winter Camp (3-7 March 2009) have been uploaded to Vimeo! A total of 28(!) was selected and is now available online, in HD quality and available for downloading as .ogg file.

We hope that the interviews will be viewed, downloaded, screened and shared extensively, and would like to thank all the networks and interviewees for collaborating with us on this wonderful collection of insights into how networks work. A special thanks goes out to Gerbrand Oudenaarden from Engage! Tactical Media, who did the entire production and generously offered server space for hosting these videos. And thanks to Urte Jurgaityte, for assisting Gerbrand and the meta-group interviewers in getting this done.

\\\Society of the Query conference: 13 - 14 November, Trouw Amsterdam in Amsterdam\\\ With the Society of the Query conference -stop searching, start questioning-, the Institute of Network Cultures aims to critically reflect on the information society and the dominant role of the search engine in our culture. What does it mean to depend on an engine to manage the complex system of knowledge on the Internet? What are the alternatives? How can the increasingly centralized Web be regulated? What is the future of interface design? By bringing together researchers, theorists and artists, the conference will examine the key issues that are emerging around Web search, and contextualize developments within the fields of knowledge organization and information design.
