UCSB English Department / Literature.Culture.Media Center Talk 24th Feb 2009

I'm giving a talk about my research in the Literature.Culture.Media Center at the University of California Santa Barbara on Tuesday 24th February 2009, from 3.30pm-5.00pm.

When Geeks Go Camping: Cyberspace and the Outdoor Life
This talk 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. It is drawn from research for a book-length study, The Wild Surmise: Nature and Cyberspace, which discusses the many ways in which we use our experiences of nature to situate and comprehend our experiences of cyberspace.
