announcing the new Goldsmiths MA/MSc in Creating Social Media :
http://www.gold.ac.uk/pg/ma-creating-social-media/

"What does social media look like after recent events in Japan, North
Africa and the UK? What will you create? This unique theory/practice
programme combines computing and cultural studies to provide you with
the practical and critical skills to shape the future of social media.
The MA/MSc is a collaborative theory/practice programme across the
Department of Computing and the Centre for Cultural Studies, and is
part of the newly launched Centre for Creative and Social
Technologies.
Based on global examples, you will explore the technological and
intellectual questions that have risen to prominence with the social
web. You will critique existing approaches and tools, and plan,
develop, hack and implement ground-breaking applications and
campaigns. You will not only analyse: you will create.
New social media platforms, at their best, develop new online forms of
connecting, relating, sharing and competing. Effective and innovative
social media creation, therefore, involves deep theoretical and
practical knowledge of both software development and social
processes."

feel free to pass on my details as first point of contact.
