critical perspectives on web 2.0

my short essay, "history, hype, and hope: an afterward," has been published in this month's issue of first monday. yeah!

the origins of this collaboration was a panel called "critical perspectives on web 2.0: surveillance, discipline, labor," organized by michael zimmer for the association of internet researchers conference in vancouver, canada in october 2007. our panel was well received and well attended ...

... so we decided to approach first monday about a special issue. they agreed; we worked hard to prepare our papers for publication; and yesterday, on the first monday of the month, first monday published our efforts:

since 1996 (!), first monday has been churning out goodness each month, and it's a delight to be a contributor to this journal. it's also a delight to publish with a free and open-access journal that is online, which, among other things, allowed me to embed a youtube video into my essay.

thanks to michael for organizing us, to my fellow contributors for making the special issue special, and to first monday for doing what they've been doing for over ten years.
