Care to Join the Conversation?


A while back, the Rumpus quietly launched a new series: Conversations about the Internet. And we hereby invite interested writers to join in. Click through for the details.

The aim of this series is to examine the ways in which culture is evolving as a result of the Internet and the Web, and it features interviews with academics, journalists, technical people, and creators who have deep knowledge and insight into the cultural issues that have been raised, in the past fifteen years, by this particular set of technologies.

Subjects so far have been Twitter co-founder Biz Stone, blogging expert Scott Rosenberg, and this morning’s feature, Jonathan Zittrain, who has studied the ways in which the Internet is becoming less free. And we have upcoming interviews with Brett Gaylor and Katherine Hayles.

The Rumpus has a short list of key subjects whom we’ll definitely be featuring in the months ahead, but we’d like to get your input too.

If you’d like to suggest a subject, simply leave a comment on this post; if you’d like to inquire about contributing, send an email with the subject line “Conversations about the Internet” to the series editor, Jeremy Hatch, at jeremy (at) therumpus (dot) net.
