Luhmann in Oslo

The entire University of Oslo's Designing Design Interface and interaction: Social software seminar is online as a bunch of mp4 files. I haven't had much luck in accessing them, but will keep trying. Webb and Greenfield were there, and given my recent posts about complex systems, I'm looking forward to hearing Terje Rasmussen on Luhmann and Social Software.

I'm not so much a supporter of Niklas Luhmann's ontologies (a.k.a. his anti-critical, second-order cybernetics, grand theory of autopoietic social systems) as I am a believer that he was a good problematiser. You know: good questions, not so satisfying answers.

Anyway, yeah, so good to see conference archives like this. Wish it happened more often.
