forthcoming – When Geeks Go Camping: finding California in cyberspace

I've had enquiries asking when this article will be available. It will be published in the February 2009 issue of Convergence: The International Journal of Research into New Media Technologies
but unfortunately you have to subscribe to get access. It's the first
full piece I've written for this project, and it examines the evolution
of nature
metaphors in computing and cyberspace via some examples of the
influence of
Californian outdoor life on computer culture in Silicon Valley and
beyond.

I presented it in September at DRHA08 and will also give a talk on it at the University of California Santa Barbara on 24th February 2009.
