hey everyone,

here an announcement of three social network related events and publications. i apologize for cross-postings.

friday 21. of october, there is an event in brussels titled:
from cyborgs to facebook: technological dreams and feminist critiques (in english/french/dutch)
taking place at amazone. entrance costs 8-12euros. the event is organized by the sophia network.

oliver leistert and theo roehle have edited a compilation with the title:
generation facebook: ueber das leben im social net (in german)
published by transcript
In diesem Band kommen internationale Autorinnen und Autoren zu Wort, die erstmals eine umfassende medien- und kulturkritische Perspektive auf Facebook entwickeln. In fundierten theoretischen Beiträgen – u.a. von Geert Lovink – sowie perspektivenreichen Kommentaren – u.a. von Saskia Sassen – werden die wichtigsten Facetten des Phänomens untersucht und die Konsequenzen dieser neuen Form von Sozialität analysiert.

and, finally, in the belgium based international project spion we just completed a report on state-of-the-art of research in certain subfields of computer science, communication studies, educational science, behavioral economics, and legal studies with respect to privacy and security in online social networks. you can download the document here (in english)
we look forward to any comments and questions.
