At the closing ceremony of the first international Mozilla Drumbeat Festival on “Learning, Freedom, and the Open Web,” Mozilla CEO Mitchell Baker announced that five projects previewed at the Festival had been selected for further development by Mozilla, including three presented at HASTAC’s “Storming the Academy” tent. Mozilla will take these projects forward from the prototype stage and for six months will feature them on the newly designed Drumbeat homepage (http://www.drumbeat.org/). Two of the HASTAC projects were proposed by one of HASTAC’s founders, Professor Anne Balsamo (University of Southern California), as part of her ongoing work on the technological imagination. The third was prototyped by students in FutureClass, the peer-led tutorial on collaboration that Professor Cathy Davidson organized at Duke University. Five members of FutureClass accompanied Davidson and the HASTAC@Duke team to Barcelona and ran a three-day schedule of activities, demos, apps, and sessions as part of the “Storming the Academy” programming. read more >>
