We have the pleasure to announce the second (G)local conference organized by NYUS. The title of 2008 conference is:
Blogging: Evolution Treated as Revolution
We are distributing the official Call for papers these days, you can find all details here. In addition just the introduction part of it:
The majority of the content daily published on the world wide web is user generated, most of it posted on blogs or other social media platforms. The exact number of blogs is impossible to state at any given point due to the highly decentralized and dynamic character of the blogosphere. The evolution of the Internet is driven by that dynamic and decentralized nature of this new rhetorical opportunity that is becoming more available and easier to use. There is a growing need for sophisticated discussion of social media including blogs, blogging, blogosphere and social software in general.
The International Conference Glocal 2.0: Blogging: Evolution treated as Revolution invites researchers and practitioners (bloggers) for a discussion and analysis, as well as for sharing thoughts and experiences on the emerging networked society we live in. …Call for Papers
