My paper was officially accepted to ISEA, the week-long party-cum-art-show-cum-conference that takes place on a ferry traveling between Helsinki, Tallinn and Stockholm. It looks like I'd be speaking in Helsinki, as part of a panel discussion on critical interaction design. I can't believe my proposal made it in - there were 1300 proposals submitted, 300 on the short list, and only about 100 in the final program - so I'm both stunned and pleased.

On the down side, I've got two big problems. First of all, my lecture would be on Shabbat, and that could get uncomfortable with the whole not-using-electricity thing. Second, they don't have funding to fly me out to Stockholm; I'd have to apply for my own funding, and I'm not even quite sure where to start looking for something like this. Not currently being affiliated with NYU is a problem, though if I accept the Columbia offer I imagine they'd be willing to send me.

I'm going to interview the Columbia people on Thursday; now I've got double incentive!

woo-hoo! that's really neat - you'll love Stockholm! hope you have some time to look around (I also hope you don't get sea-sick - but fortunately the Baltic is not the choppiest of seas). Good luck with funding apps!
