Holy Crapanoly

I submitted a proposal to ISEA 2004 a couple of months ago, but I didn't actually think it was going to go anywhere; the proposal was kind of outside my direct area of interest (collaborative storytelling) and, frankly, I didn't have much confidence in my ideas.

But . . . I just got an email saying my proposal was shortlisted - one of only 300 of 1300 proposals submitted! - and that I'll hear in the next couple of weeks whether it was accepted. If it's accepted, I'll be going to a week-long floating geek party/conference that travels between Helsinki, Stockholm and Tallinn and talking about lessons for developing real-world community-specific social software that actually works. There are going to be a lot of really interesting people there, I love Scandinavia, and I'm excited (but kind of nervous!) that I might have the chance to speak publicly about my ideas in a somewhat different intellectual domain.

I should hear about my storytelling workshop for the Networks, Art and Collaboration conference soon, too.

Keep your fingers crossed for me, folks!
