Social Networks and Passion


Tomorrow (Friday 20th March 2009) Bernd Ploderer will be presenting his research at the University of Nottingham’s Mixed Reality Lab.  Bernd is a visting PhD student from the Interaction Design Group and Department of Information Systems at the University of Melbourne, where I met him last August.  His research focuses on computer supported cooperative work (CSCW)  especially in the appropriation of social network sites to pursue extreme passions such as bodybuilding.

The seminar runs from 12 noon at the MRL and will be of interest to anyone researching social networks, risk, ties, ethnography and obsession.
