  1. Jonathan Harris at Flash On The Beach

    This talk by Jonathan Harris, which I was lucky enough to attend, has caused quite a stir in the Flash community. For the first hour, Jonathan talks about his (amazing) work. In the closing half hour, he takes not just the Flash community, but all Web workers to task for concentrating too much on the technical and not enough on meaning. It’s the ideas that matter, he argues; enough with the experimentation already.

  2. Jonathan Gil Harris: Becoming Indian | Nine To Noon, 10:10 am on 10 May 2016 | Radio New Zealand

    Jonathan Gil Harris is a Shakespearean scholar who’s written a history of the weird and wonderful people came to make India their home in the 16th and 17th centuries. First of the Firangis weaves the stories of these historical migrants together with Gil’s own personal experiences - he himself moved to India three years ago to take up a position as a professor of English at Ashoka University in New Delhi. Now GiIl is working on a new project closer to his prior area of expertise, Masala Shakespeare - looking at how the Bard’s work has been adapted and re-imagined in an Indian context.

  4. Hatching a New Way to Tell Stories

    Fast and agile like a bird, slow and ruminant like a cow. Jonathan Harris says his new project is designed to be a narrative alternative to the data mayhem that fills the web.

    Unlike his much-lauded past project, We Feel Fine, Harris says Cowbird is not about cataloguing diverse, fragmentary statements. He wants it to be a place where people can go deeply into the "ecstatic truth" of human life.

  6. Internet Governance and Regulation: The Future of the Internet - and How to Stop It

    This inaugural lecture by Jonathan Zittrain proposes a theory about what lies around the corner for the Internet, how to avoid it, and how to study and affect the future of the internet using the distributed power of the network itself, using privacy as a signal example.

    Jonathan Zittrain holds the Chair in Internet Governance and Regulation at Oxford University and is also the Jack N. & Lillian R. Berkman Visiting Professor for Entrepreneurial Legal Studies at Harvard Law School. His research interests include battles for control of digital property and content, cryptography, electronic privacy, the roles of intermediaries within Internet architecture, and the useful and unobtrusive deployment of technology in education.
