during workshop at @TU_Berlin@twitter.com on Mediatisation, Visualisation and Participation in Urban Planning @Andreas_Hepp@twitter.com speaks about Deep Mediatization as a thorough coupling between media innovation and social change that turns into a »media manifold« (joint research with @couldrynick@twitter.com)

in the theory track at , @DrThomasErnst@twitter.com proposes the establishment of Critical Digital Cultural Studies as an institutional, societal, methodological and theoretical reflection about contemporary culture

enlightening argument by Daniel Althof at : and the computer are no antagonists of the humanities: the analysis of signs may be supported by algorithms, but their interpretation remains a human endeavor

I wrote a couple of essays on interaction design and data visualisation. The most recent one — "Strategies for Design-Science Collaboration" — might also be interesting for this community!

Feedback welcome!

Sybille Krämer finishes her keynote with a plea for a social epistemology that relies on collective and collaborative work and overcomes the methodological individualism of the past. a nice way to start off a conference!

the thorn of the digital is fourfold:
- technique as cultural practice
- textuality as coding/recoding
- visuality as epistemic device
- networks as diagrams

in her keynote Sybille Krämer is making the case that the digital can be viewed as a thorn of the humanities - and cites Johanna Drucker:

"the tasks of creating metadata, doing markup, and making classification schemes or information architectures forced humanists to make explicit many assumptions often left implicit in our work"

Mario Klingemann @quasimondo@twitter.com describes his self-taught art practice based on neural networks, especially generative adversarial networks. Looking forward to part 2 and 3: youtube.com/watch?v=FjgZAAQzhG
