Sunday, September 12, 2004
On Friday 10th and Saturday 11th September, I was fortunate enough to attend the amazing Network Media: Code, Culture, Convenion symposium which was held at the University of Western Australia. A full report on the symposium (or as full as my comments ever get) will turn up sometime in the next week when I finish marking for Self.Net, but I thought I'd say a quick digital hello to fellow blogger Kylie Veale of Internet Genealogy fame (and who also blogged the Oxford Internet Institute's 2004 Doctoral Program).

Also at the symposium, but who stealthily avoided the camera, was Mr Gaimlee Manna himself, Stewart Woods, who I was delighted to swap a few words with since I don't think we've previously had much of a conversation in the "real" world. So, a great weekend where parts of the blogosphere remapped themselves onto actual geography!
