Traditional Media’s Win Over the New Media?

“The study(A Study of the News Ecosystem of One American City)offered support for the argument often made by the traditional media that, so far, most of what digital news outlets offer is repetition and commentary, not new information.”

Forget Tokyo. Design aficionados are now heading to Seoul.

They have been drawn by the Korean capital’s glammed-up cafes and restaurants, immaculate art galleries and monumental fashion palaces like the sprawling outpost of Milan’s 10 Corso Como and the widely noted Ann Demeulemeester store — an avant-garde Chia Pet covered in vegetation.

And now Seoul, under its design-obsessed mayor, Oh Se-hoon, is the 2010 World Design Capital. The title, bestowed by a prominent council of industrial designers, means a year’s worth of design parties, exhibitions, conferences and other revelries. Most are still being planned (go to for updates). A highlight will no doubt be the third annual Seoul Design Fair (Sept. 17 to Oct. 7), the city’s answer to the design weeks in Milan and New York, which last year drew 2.5 million people and featured a cavalcade of events under two enormous inflatable structures set up at the city’s Olympic stadium. — Aric Chen

Call for NCA Panel Participants: The Discourses of Global Warming

In CFP on January 5, 2010 at 2:55 pm

I am putting together a panel focusing on the discourses of global warming. Despite what appears to be a general consensus of the scientific community that anthropogenic (human-produced) carbon emissions are fundamentally responsible for the rising of temperatures world-wide, there are substantial and vocal counter-arguments. These include assertions that the science of global warming is faked or poorly conceived or alarmist.

In addition, there are other communication factors which impact the science of global warming, all informed by the premise that scientific discourse is profoundly rhetorical and driven, both in its execution and dissemination, by ideology and pathos. These include the discursive strategies used between experts as well as those used by climate scientists as they advocate individual perspectives, with varying degrees of success, to the lay public. I welcome paper proposals related to the topic of global warming as a scientific controversy and a rhetorical construct.

Proposals which integrate the “building bridges” conference theme would also be welcomed, although not a pre-requisite for inclusion. If you are interested in this panel, please email a paper title and abstract of no more than 250 words, as well as your name, title, affiliation and contact information by February 1, 2010 to Please also indicate if you would be willing to serve as a chair or respondent or if you know of anyone interested in doing so.
