Learning about digital methods in Amsterdam

It’s January, cold and snowy in Oslo – what better then to spend four days in Amsterdam learning about digital methods?

Winter School

I’m very excitied about my chance to take part in the University of Amsterdam’s Winter School for the first time. The theme is  “Data Sprint: The New Logistics of Short-form Method” and in addition to a mini-conference (schedule), we are doing a 3-day workshop on emerging alternatives to big data, such as Barcamp, Hackathon, Hack Day, Edit-a-thon, Data Sprint, Code Fest, Open Data Day, Hack the Government:

“The 2013 Digital Methods Winter School is dedicated to the outcomes and critiques of short-form method, and is also reflexive in that it includes a data sprint, where we focus on one aspect of the debate about short- vs. long-form method: data capture.”

One of the cases we will hear about is a data sprint related to counter-Jihadists, the other case is a method for issue mapping, specifically about how to visualize right wing extremism in Europe.

Amsterdam next!

  1. I do not know iff it’s just me or if everyone else encountering problems
    with your website. It appears as though some of the written text within your content are running off the screen.
    Can somebody else please provide feedback and let me know if this
    is happening to them too? This might be a problem with my web browser because I’ve had
    this happen before. Cheers

  2. Spot on with this write-up, I seriously feel this web site
    needs a lot more attention. I’ll probably be returning to read through more, thanks for
    the information!
