Well, it’s official, Reclaim Hosting is partnering with University of Oklahoma to host Domains 2017.
What is Domains 2017 all about? Well, read Adam Croom‘s Letter of Welcome for more details, but in short it’s modeled on the idea of a two-day Record Fair where folks come together to share the work they are doing around domains projects. This is by no means limited to schools running Domain of One’s Own projects—though they are certainly one focus—but to showcase a wide array of approaches to everything from free web-based tools to SPLOTS to Personal APIs to teaching on the open web to Digital Identity to critical approaches to Digital Literacies and more. It’s a communal, fair-like event where pedagogy and ed-tech meets technical architecture so that we can begin to think through them together.
Where is it? Oklahoma City, right smack dab in the middle of the USA! The venue will be a Museum/Gallery space and the Record Fair is not simply a conceit, we will be running a significant portion of the conference as carnival-like showcase with records, tapes, live music and more.
When is it? June 5th and 6th, 2017.
How much? Right now it’s $199 to register, and that includes a light breakfast and lunch on both days—a deal at twice that because we love you!
I wanna submit? We have officially opened up the call today, and we have made the submission process as painless as possible. We are closing the call on February 1st, so get submitting.
Can I register now? Yes, please do. Here’s the registration and venue information.
How do I stay updated? I’ll definitely be blogging about it regularly here, but we also have a website and a Twitter account (@DomainsConf), so be sure to follow/watch those spaces as well—sorry no Facebook group for this bad boy!
I’ll keep this short so you all can catch your breath, but we’ll be regularly posting about the event over the next few months. We’re really excited to be able to do this, and we hope to see many of you there!
I wish I lived closer to Oklahoma City. I love a good record fair.
If you don’t come Bond, you’re dead to me!
I was about to start looking at airfare to Oklahoma City, until I saw that crossed out SPLOT. I don’t wanna stir up no trouble…
Did I mess up your intuitive acronym? Bastard!
I’m not even a trusted commenter anymore. I suppose we all knew this day would come.
You reap what you sow, Lamb!
