> Subject: [Air-L] IR.11 call for panelists: On the Philosophy of Facebook
> Facebook's Mark Zuckerberg has built his social networking empire on the belief that "information wants to be shared", a particular philosophy of information that directly impacts the values built into the design of Facebook, ranging from its user interface, privacy policies, terms of service, and method of governance.
> I am proposing a panel for IR.10 (Gothenburg, Sweden, Oct 21-23, 2010) titled "On the Philosophy of Facebook". This panel will explore the philosophy of Facebook and its broader implications for norms of privacy, identity, governance, sociability, and online life generally.
> Ideal papers will provide philosophical, conceptual, and/or critical insights into Facebook and social networking generally. 
> If interested in joining this panel, please email me (zimmerm at uwm.edu) a 250-500 word abstract, and a brief biography, by February 13. 
> Best,
