SXSW slides, CSCW paper, and more

Last month I gave a 12-minute talk at SXSW about One Laptop Per Child as part of a Future 15 panel. The crib of that talk (with picture-heavy slides) is now available on my website at http://research.morganya.org/ames-sxsw-futures15-olpc.pdf. I'd love to hear your thoughts about it. It's a pretty short read, and for those of you who have been following my dissertation work, it will sound familiar.

Immediately following SXSW I flew to CSCW in Hangzhou, China to present the work I did with Janet Go at Nokia Research -- how family technology choices are influenced by socioeconomic status. The full paper is available for download at http://research.morganya.org/ames-cscw11-class.pdf.

I'll be defending my dissertation *proposal* this May (not the whole dissertation, though! that comes next year), and in early June I will be attending the CSST (Consortium for the Science of Socio-Technical systems) 2011 Summer Institute in Florida. More updates soon!
