Nancy Baym is about to deliver the final keynote for AoIR IR11. Rather humorous, and from sitting in the next to last row (like the Church of the Internet), I can see and hear computers and Twitter back-channel specs so much that I wonder how much Nancy is being listened to. I Tweeted about this as a matter of fact.
This interactive audience and keynote would make for an amazing performative study.
Anyway, I am Tweeting about this along the way, and will leave most of my comments there.
