(photo caption: Mark Dery discusses macrophilia at Arse Elektronika 2007)
tyrsalvia and I are still putting the finishing touches on our coverage of the Arse Elektronika 2007 conference, but I've got all of my photos up (though some of them still need to be tagged and captioned). You can see the full gallery of them here at my FlickR. Summaries of a number of the presentations are up at tyrsalvia's blog with more to come.
More write-ups and photos:
- qDotScott and Violet for the shoutouts for my photo coverage.
AE was one of the best conference experiences I've had, with an excellent mix of technical and academic material combined with zanie antics and wacky hijinks. I think all academic papers should have to be presented in dungeons. I'm definitely looking forward to it next year.
Now off to the wrap-up party!
tyrsalvia will be leading a panel discussion at 8:30 PM, How Porn & Tech Change Sexual Discourse. I'm also particularly looking forward to Mark Dery's talk.
I'm doing coverage for the conference for Scarleteen (the premier website focused on sexual education for teenagers), though it will be a few days until this specific coverage is available (to give me time to edit for a teenage audience).
I'll be covering it here as well; I already have a large number of photos online of last night's opening festivities available at FlickR (while none of these contain nudity, they might be NSFW, depending on where you work. Big thanks are due to foxgrrl and darkmoon for loaning me cameras for this event (my beloved Fujifilm 4900 is on its last legs and cannot hold a charge for very long)!
I'm too fried to summarize what's happened thus far now; Ariel Waldman has an excellent post about the earliest of last evening's activities.
