Well, it’s three weeks old by now, but still – read the latest issue over at the web page. This issue features articles about Norway’s science communication policies, the negotiation of expertise in determining natural risk and questions of the efficacy of using online collaborative tools in corporate settings, as well as interesting book reviews.
A new article of mine entitled “Do libertarians dream of electric coins? The material embeddedness of Bitcoin” has just been published in Distinktion: Scandinavian Journal of Social Theory. It’s about the digital currency Bitcoin and the implications of introducing a decentralised, unregulated currency into a sector that is usually strictly controlled. You can read it at the journal page, or in an ungated but ugly version at my scientific publications page.
The article I have written together with Professor Marianne Ryghaug, titled “Public attitudes towards renewable energy technologies in Norway. The role of party preferences” has now been officially published in the journal Energy Policy, and is available to read online. If you do not have institutional access to that particular journal (which unfortunately is not Open Access) you can find a final draft on my scientific publications page.
Here is a half hour video of me talking (and stuttering) to TrønderEnergi about the prospect of Norway becoming a “green battery” for Europe. It’s in Norwegian.
I’ve written a post for Technoport’s new blog about technology and innovation. It reports some data from a survey I did a while back on Norwegians’ attitudes towards renewable energy and the politics behind their construction. Feel free to comment!
Nordic Journal of Science and Technology Studies, of which I happen to be the editor, has just been announced. Read more about it, including call for papers, at our web page.
