[Yasmin_discussions] Restarting the discussion on the subject of "The hybrid city as an interface" with a slight change of title

Dear YASMINers,

A moderated discussion on the subject of "The hybrid city as an interface"
took place in the YASMIN_discussions mailing list forum
(, in July for 3 weeks. According to several voices
we heard on the list and outside too, this discussion was received with
enthusiasm and many very interesting messages were posted, therefore we
promised to pursue it in September. We would now like to start the
discussion again.

Me and Martin Rieser had the chance to discuss this in Athens last week when
Martin visited, and we thought that a slight change in the title of the
discussion could help include several issues which were raised during July.
We therefore propose to change the title to: "Hybrid Space - Hybrid Cities"
which is more general and may include mediated environmental experiences
outside the urban context too.

The discussion will be moderated by Dimitris Charitos and Prof. Martin
Rieser, along with Daphne Dragona, Katerina Diamantaki and Iouliani Theona
as respondents and will continue for 3-4 weeks, according to the interest it
will raise.

We are looking forward to you participation and involvement.

Kind regards

Dimitris Charitos
Assistant Professor, Department of Communication and Media Studies
University of Athens
