Who is Sands Fish?
Sands Fish is a data scientist and computational artist focusing on the digital public sphere and communities of discourse in citizen media. He spent eight years as a senior software engineer at the MIT Libraries, and he is currently a research fellow at Harvard’s Berkman Center for Internet & Society, a fellow at MIT’s HyperStudio, and a research affiliate at the MIT Center for Civic Media.
And he will be our Saturday plenary talk at the Spring 2015 MARAC/NEA Joint Meeting.
We've had an overwhelming, positive response to this year's meeting, which is breaking attendance records. Because this is a joint meeting and we have a very popular program, we encourage you to prioritize which sessions you would like to attend. If there is a session you really want to attend, we recommend you get your seat early.
If a session becomes crowded, find a member of the Program Committee or visit the registration desk for recommendations on alternate sessions to attend. Please note that session rooms will not have Wi-Fi, though this will be available in the hotel lobby. Should you want a break, the Local Arrangements Committee is also putting together a list of local attractions and recommended places to get food/coffee.
See you in Boston... this week!
