I’m delighted to announce that I’ve been invited to write a regular column for The Conversation, an independent source of news and views sourced from the academic and research community and delivered direct to the public. It has a very interesting business model whereby anyone can republish articles without charge as long as they are properly credited. This means that writing can achieve a much broader reach than from staying within a single website.
My column is called Wired well-being: making space for digital life and I aim to post something at least once a month, probably more often. We kicked off last Friday with a piece on the new EU CyberPark research project which convened for the first time last month. This is actually the fourth article I’ve written there – other topics were digital detoxing, online meditation, and virtual nature – and I’ll be continuing on that theme, looking for news about ways to live well and healthily in today’s wired world.
I’d love to hear about relevant projects so do let me know if you’re working on something that might fit the theme of the column.
