As you listen, you can replay the fascinating conversation from our live chat room here at CoveritLive.
Tom Coates has been blogging and working on social software since well before either of them got that name. He cares very much about making the web a suitable place for people to live in, and has been doing so with Barbelith, UpMyStreet, BBC Radio, The Open Rights Group, Yahoo Brickhouse and FireEagle.
He even started a blog about Tummeling called Everything in Moderation 8 years ago.
We thought it might be smart to give you folks some background on our guests prior to the show. Hopefully, this will spark and encourage and create a greater participation vibe, questions or comments.
Some background on Elizabeth in her own words:
In my professional life, I am a researcher, designer and observer of communication technologies. Originally a psychologist by training, for the past several years I have drawn on diverse areas to consider how to design effective communication situationsâ€”both face to face and technologically mediated. At the centre of my work is a fascination with people’s passions, proclivities and practices.
I have studied and written about mobility and mobile work, distributed collaboration, interaction in graphical and textual virtual spaces, and the augmentation of public spaces with digital artifacts. Applications designed and/or evaluated include cell phone interfaces, textual and 3d graphical environments, interactive digital posterboards and animated interface personas.
I currently work at Yahoo! Research, and am based in Santa Clara, CA. Formerly, I worked at PARC, the Palo Alto Research Center in Palo Alto, California in the Computing Science Lab (CSL). Prior to that I was the project lead of the Social Computing Group at FX Palo Laboratory, Fuji Xerox’s research lab in Palo Alto.
My physical instantiation is usually in San Francisco.
That last line gives you a good indication of how much fun this week’s show will be. Elizabeth is also a friend to your Tummelvision host – we have discussed the art of Tummeling and social engagement a lot. We expect this to result in some good in depth discussions on Thursday nite!
