I interviewed George Mason University’s T Mills Kelly for BBC Radio 4’s The Digital Human, for the programme about Mischief.

My latest blogpost for DML Central describes some of the things I discovered about the South American technology scene on a recent trip to Argentina. Here’s an excerpt:
Belen Igarzábal from FLACSO is currently producing an 8-part television series inspired by The Virtual Revolution which will look at the impact of this communications technology on Latin America. She and the production team are traveling to Brazil, Peru, Paraguay and Uruguay to explore the issues from a particularly South American perspective: “There’a a lot of research about how the internet is evolving and changing our participation, governments and economics around the world, but nothing about South America. We have particularities: we are a mix of cultures — Aboriginal, Spanish, Portuguese — and that mix makes us different from other parts of the world in terms of how we connect, how the government is involved in connectivity, in education.”

My most recent post for DML Central is the adaptation of the text from my Glasgow Lecture, which I wrote about a few weeks ago. I’ll be exploring the issues I raise in the blogpost in greater detail over the next year in the research project I’m starting next month as part of my Visiting Fellowship in the Media and Communications Department at LSE, funded by the Nominet Trust.

This week I started my Visiting Fellowship in the Media and Communications Department at the LSE. I’m absolutely thrilled to be part of this incredibly dynamic group of learned academics and incredibly inspiring researchers. I’ll be at the LSE until September 2012, working on two projects.
