ARS Electronica – Digital Communities

Wie im vergangenen Jahr bin ich wieder von der ARS Electronica angefragt worden, die Jury des Preises für „Digital Communities“ als Mitglied des Beirates zu beraten. Das mache ich doch gerne und verweise hier auf die Nominierungsmöglichkeiten für diese Kategorie:


netzpolitik.org - unabhängig & kritisch dank Euch.

The „Digital Communities“ category will honor important achievements by digital communities well as innovative artistic approaches towards web-based communities. This category focuses attention on the wide-ranging social and artistic impact of the Internet as well as on the latest developments in the fields of social software, ubiquitous computing, mobile communications andwireless networks. Special attention goes to community-related “net.art”. „Digital Communities“ spotlights bold and inspired innovations impacting human coexistence, bridging the geographical as well as gender-based digital divide and cultural conflicts, sustaining cultural diversity and the freedom of artistic expression or creating outstanding social software and enhancing accessibility of technological-social infrastructure. This category showcases the political and artistic potential of digital and networked systems and is thus designed as a forum for the consideration of a broad spectrum of projects, programs, artworks, initiatives and phenomena in which social and artistic innovation is taking place, as it were, in real time. A Golden Nica, two Awards of Distinction and up to 12 Honorary Mentions will be awarded in the Digital Communities category in 2007.

Zu den Gewinnern der letzten Jahre gehörten Wikipedia, Creative Commons, Bittorrent und verschiedene eher unbekannte Communities aus anderen Kulturkreisen.
