Al Gore, MySpace top Day 2 panels
COLUMBIA, SC-- "An Inconvenient Truth" is making the headlines today for more than one reason. Early this morning, we learned that Vice President Al Gore is sharing the latest Nobel Peace Prize for his work on the documentary.
But, here at the convergence conference, it was Al Gore's acceptance of an Academy Award that was the focus of at least one presentation on convergence and pop culture.
Two different papers were presented on the hot topic of social networking. MySpace, in particular, was the subject one graduate student's study at University of Central Florida.
And, the big news that I learned just moments ago, there's now a blog for The Convergence Newsletter. Check it out.
It's lunchtime and we still have three afternoon panels to go.
