2016 Presentations
Lilly Nguyen: Piracy and Place-Making
Title: Piracy and Place-making: An ethnography of a software copy shop in Hanoi, Vietnam
Presenter: Lilly Nguyen, Women and Gender Studies at UNC
Abstract:
In this talk, I describe the work of a pirated software disc shop in Hanoi, Vietnam. Based on nineteen months of ethnographic fieldwork conducted in 2010 to 2011, this talk will show how copying served as a form of place-making. Copying allowed shop owners to make and reproduce software discs, but more importantly, copying proved to be a vital process in which people shared knowledge, repaired computers, and generated professional networks along “Computer Street.” As such, rather than assume piracy to be illicit and illegal, this talk instead reveals the ways in which copying and piracy are highly contingent on culturally informed ideas of expertise, techno-material stability, and everyday entrepreneurial cultures.

Ingrid Erickson:Workers on the Move
Title: Infrastructuring & the Artful Integrations of Workers on the Move
Presenter: Ingrid Erickson of Rutgers
Abstract:
Contemporary forms of work, while continuing to be intimately connected to information and communication technologies (ICTs), are increasingly being shaped by two new sociotechnical forces–the expanding global economy and emerging cloud infrastructures. Together these realities have resulted in the need for a new type of worker that is technically skilled and amenable to project work, while likewise able to accomplish his or her tasks across multiple environments or while on the move. These individuals can be likened to professional satellites—actors who define their work not by their presence in a traditional work-related location but by their agile ability to orbit around clients, co-workers, and infrastructures integrating inputs and output as they circumnavigate. This talk draws on a recent study to explore how workers must actively configure infrastructures to address both technological and contextual constraints, ranging from technological and infrastructural breakdown to difficulties caused by both spatial and organizational boundaries. These ‘artful integrations’ by workers involve the construction of bridging, assembling, and circumventing solutions to maintain task continuity and, more importantly, to produce a seamless veneer of professionalism for clients and coworkers. Engaging in these practices requires that workers develop ‘infrastructural competence’ in addition to knowledge expertise–a discovery that suggests not only the need for new ways of training workers in the future, but also an update to the ways that we conceptualize knowledge work.

Dima Epstein: Online Civic
Title: If you build it, will they come? Practices, technology, and the value proposition of online civic engagement.
Presenter: Dima Epstein, University of Illinois
Abstract:
Between Twitter revolutions and Facebook elections, there is a growing belief that information and communication technologies are changing the way democracy is practiced. The discourse around e-government and online deliberation is frequently focused on technical solutions and based in the belief that if you build it correctly effective mass participation will follow. This talk will delve into the intricacies of design and practice of effective online engagement in complex policymaking activities and deliberation; it will also touch on the value proposition of lay citizens’ contribution to such processes. The talk is based on research conducted on RegulationRoom – an experimental online c ivic engagement platform designed and operated by CeRI (Cornell eRulemaking initiative). It will draw on three recent studies dealing with mapping of challenges for effective online participation, experimenting with platform design, and evaluating potential contribution of such civic engagement.

Presentation:Not available
Abstract:For the first time, the American Society for Information Science & Technology (ASIST) conference will host both a blog and a wiki for their annual conference. Brad Hemminger and Jackson Fox developed and will host the ASIST 2005 wiki. We’ll talk about our vision for how we think wikis and blogs can help encourage communication between conference participants before, during and after the conference. We’ll walk you through the ASIST wiki, blog, and some of the behind the scene decisions in choosing the wiki, and designing it for ASIST. We’ll leave time for lots of questions, and for others to share their experience with wikis and blogs as well. Please bring your laptop and engage in interacting with and updating the wiki (before, during and after the talk)!

Below are links to the main ASIST wiki page, and the discussion page on the wiki specifically for this talk. Use the discussion page to pose questions and comments before or during the talk.

If you don’t have experience with wikis yet, we promise you’ll have at least a passing knowledge by the end of this talk!

Nancy Green : Subject indexing via annotation in the GENIE project
Title:Subject indexing via annotation in the GENIE project
Presenter:Nancy Green
Where:Manning Hall room 208
When:Friday, March 4th 2005, 12 Noon
Presentation:Not available
Abstract:Nancy Green: As for the talk, my goal is to give an overview of an annotation scheme for clinical genetics documents that I developed for the GenIE project. I was thinking that it may be of interest to the Digital Libraries group since it is a kind of subject indexing though not in the traditional sense. So, I planned to give an overview of the goals of the GenIE project, and describe how this kind of Bayesian network-based annotation scheme compares to a thesaurus or semantic network based approach. (attached is a copy of the journal paper on which the talk will be based.)

Special Note: Nancy is interested in talking with people at UNC. She will be here for a visit Friday afterNoon (4th). There will be a general open discussion immediately following her talk, as well as potential time slots for individual or small group discussions with her. If you’re interested please email me (bmh@ils.unc.edu) to make arrangements.

Presenter:Brad Hemminger
Where:Manning 208
When:Friday, Sept 3rd 2004, 12:30pm
Presentation:Not available
Abstract:
Come see and experience how most museum patrons may visit museums virtually in the future. Dr. Hemminger will present the basics of how entire museum exhibits (as well as individual pieces) can be digitized and then visualized in virtual reality. He’ll also discuss how users will interact with online virtual museums. There will be plenty of time at the end for folks to test drive the world’s first completely digitized museum exhibit (Ackland’s 2003 exhibit
“Plum, Pine, Bamboo: Seasonal and Spiritual Paths in Japanese Art”). This project is in conjunction with the Ackland Museum and 3rdTech. http://ils.unc.edu/bmh/virseum

Abstract:
Dr. Gary Marchionini and Dr. Jeffery Pomerantz discussed their work in evaluating digital libraries at both the local and national levels. Dr. Marchionini focused on several evaluative elements that are useful when analyzing a digital library. He advocated a multi-faceted approach for such an analysis, which includes examining the system, the user actions and the human-computer interface interactions. Dr. Pomerantz spoke about the evaluative process with the State Library of North Carolina’s new chat-based virtual reference pilot project, NC Knows. His evaluation seeks to answer the evaluation question: “Is collaborative virtual reference an effective way to meet the information needs of North Carolinians?”

Tim Shearer discussed the UNC library efforts to provide an infrastructure to cut across the current library website database, beginning with subject access to resources. He has been working to develop “tab design” and “subject drilldown”, which is due to release Fall 2003. It will allow users to go in by a subject, like “Psychology,” and get to resources collocated by the thesaurus term. Tim summarized the background behind the UNC library database, discussed what lead up to the development of this new infrastructure, and demonstrated the beta version of the new interface that is currently being developed.

Abstract:
Brad Hemminger discussed the changes wrought upon scholarly communication, and in particular the peer review process by the change to an electronic medium. The “pipeline” of the peer review process was discussed including alternative automated and human indexing & cataloging, alternative peer review mechanisms. These mechanisms include the human expert peer review, certified reviewers, open review, moderators, no review, and automated mechanisms such as citation count, usage, amount of discussion. Discussion touched on modern digital open archive systems that support multiple mechanisms. The floor discussion debated the pros and cons of the different methods.
