On tuesday I was at Media Lab, University of Art and Design Helsinki (UIAH) giving a presentation entitled “Social Software – Integrating Human and the Machine” on a course run by my friend Teemu Leinonen. It’s a very beginner friendly introduction to concepts around the changes that are driving the human in the machine. So if you are very deeply into Web 2.0 and social software, then there might not be much new for you but for the rest it’s quite accessible, although my friend Gerrit Visser told me he thinks it’s also useful for people who have their hands deep into this stuff.
I recorded the audio of my talk. It’s quite long and the best stuff starts around the middle. I added the lenghty discussion about mobile services related to social software in its own podcast, as the audio quality is not very good compared to the presentation itself.
UPDATE: Blog of the “New media and learning workshop” course is online, available here. They are working on mobile social software.
