I interviewed Joi Ito, the CEO of Creative Commons for The Observer’s My Bright Idea column, and the inimitable Andy Duckworth, producer of The Guardian’s Science Weekly nabbed some of his thoughts on open publishing for their podcast. You can download it here.

I’m starting a brand new series for The Observer New Review and The Guardian today called Untangling the web, in which I look at some of the greatest social implications of the World Wide Web. It’s a pretty awesome series that I’m very excited about, including a fortnightly column in the paper and an ongoing blog on the Guardian networks. Keep an eye on the official page, and the regularly updated Tumblr for an ongoing reporter’s notebook.

I managed to achieve my monthly belly laff quota in one evening – the night I recorded The Infinite Monkey Cage for BBC Radio 4, a science geek comedy panel programme hosted by physicist Brian Cox and comedian Robin Ince. The other panelists were chemist Tony Ryan and the hilarious Paul Foot.

I opened the Internet Advertising Bureau’s ENGAGE2010 summit in October (followed – intimidatingly – by Carol Bartz, Yahoo!’s formidable CEO) with a talk that aimed to provoke the advertising creatives in the room to consider what impact that their actions were having on the experiences of the people who consume the World Wide Web.

I was a keynote speaker at the UKRC’s annual conference in October, a network of women working in technology and science. I was absolutely honoured to be there, and the buzz was immense. There was a lot of frustration and concern, but a whole conference hall of women making the future of this sector as programmers, developers, applied scientists and inventors. The opportunity to speak with so many female Makers and Do-ers, when so many of the events I attend are overwhelmingly male, was exciting and inspirational.

I was interviewed by How It Works, and they’ve kindly opened the content – normally published on dead trees – online.
Because I chose my Canon 7D DSLR as my favourite piece of gadgetry, some of my 1984 photos were published too. They look rather nifty in print.

In this article, published this month in the RSA Journal, I grapple with the (in)ability of online social networks to support and produce real-world social action. I spent a lot of time on the arguments in this article, as it translated so much of my theoretical thinking to a more public audience: how can online social networks like Facebook and LinkedIn contribute to offline social capital? Does the online capital accrued through actions and identity development actually mean anything? How might the diffusion of responsibility, click-activism and social posturing found in online social networks thanks to their perpetuity, their first-person narratives of identity and their articulated friendship trees actually diffuse social action rather than facilitate it?
