currently, I am in transit, but would like to send
you a quick note of appreciation for the message
you circulated. It is great to encourage all
Yasminers in this fashion and I hope it will be
Quoting "xDxD.vs.xDxD" <email@example.com>:
> Dear Yasminers,
> while we are waiting for our invited discussants to post their initial
> statements, let me introduce a further element of our discussion.
> The discussion on "Next Step Publishing" will also be a live experiment in
> "Next Step Publishing".
> All the contributions to the discussion (both invited and emergent) will be
> added to an innovative software platform in which they will be organized
> under an interactive graph like structure. Key elements of the discussion
> will form systems to which we will give a generative tangible representation
> under the form of printable markers.
> These markers will be usable with an interface that we will provide: when
> placed in front of the webcam the markers will allow navigating the
> discussion, the relationships among topics and the contributions coming from
> specific disciplines, perspectives or by single individuals, providing a
> natural interaction metaphor that represents both a research on the
> methodologies and technologies that can be used to create such metaphors,
> and a live example of a mutation of the concept of scientific publication
> that can be enacted to foster new forms of knowledge sharing and education
> We strongly encourage participation of all yasminers also at this
> meta-discussion, as we feel that it provides a valuable and active
> opportunity to enact direct collaboration practices among all of us, across
> sciences, arts and creativity: we will open the platform in just a couple of
> days and we encourage criticism, suggestions and visions.
