Today as part of the MediaNetWorks project I visited HumLab in Umeå, Sweden a hotbed of innovation applying ICT to the humanities where we met with Therese Örnberg and Patrik Svensson. Our discussions ranged over podcasting and the use of an audio communication interface called Traveller but it was clear that we could have talked about many other different topics if we had had more time.

I am hoping that Therese will be able to pass on some of her experiences in a virtual conference I am organising for November.

We also met with Camilla Hälgren who told us about the Swedkid project, a story exercise exploring issues of culture and racism in Sweden, and which I hope she will also share at the virtual conference.
