Blogging as reflective practice

You are reading a blog that started off about art practice-based research charting
the journey of doing a phd. It explores alternative ways of using hand held devices
to create print-based interactive artworks using graphical tagging such as QR-codes.
Art, design, technology and craft were the main themes in writing. But life gets in the
way, and over this journey the story takes unexpected happy twists along the paths
of having a baby, going on a UK Digital Economy Sandpit, meeting fanstastic people,
and subsequent group success in funding for a large multidisciplinary research
project called TOTeM.

A nice surprise

Last year I worked with Maria Burke from Salford University on a paper for the Information Systems Journal, about the case studies that they had been doing at Salford for the TOTeM project. The work at Salford had concentrated on the business contexts in which Tales of Things could be applied and they had done extensive work with real estate agents. I was invited to join in writing the paper because I could add to the theorhetical and conceptual aspects of the paper in the areas of presence and connectivity. We'd submitted the paper last year and had it knocked back because the epistemological aspects were not clear, so we had reworked it a bit before other priorities put in it on the backburner. About 3 months ago, we finally got round to resubmitting, but because it had been so long in the process and there had been so  much to-ing and fro-ing, I forgot about it. So it came as a lovely surprise to get an email from ISJ to say that the paper has now been published! 

The paper is called The Business of Digital Storytelling - abstract to appear in the abstracts section of this website very soon!
