Recent Publications

Aiming to develop a larger body of work in a non-standard area, I used the lectures and articles listed here as milestones. Like cockoo's eggs, they needed to resemble the works in the field where they were published, and at the same time bring to life ideas that were distinct from disciplinary interests.

2009

At the beginning of 2009 I finished the book manuscript 'Informing Must Be Designed', which completed the information design portfolio.

The publication of the 'Proceedings of the First International Workshop on Knowledge Federation', which I co-edited, marked the completion of the first phase of development of knowledge federation. The main goal of this workshop and its proceedings was to create a clear profile for knowledge federation and to set the stage for its evolution. To that end, the article 'Knowledge Federation as a Principle of Social Organization of Knowledge Creation and Sharing', by Dino Karabeg and Roy Lachica, was thoroughly revised. For this volume I also wrote the article 'Knowledge Federation Patterns', which summarized the results of a year long process of combining and reconciling, or as we call it federating everyone's ideas about knowledge federation.

During the Spring semester I developed and taught the graduate course 'Socio-Semantic Web and Knowledge Federation'. The lecture 'What Is Knowledge Federation?', which I gave at the Trinity College Dublin, was another step in the process of developing the knowledge federation profile.

I am presently on sabbatical in Silicon Valley, with office at the UCSC, extending the knowledge federation network and becoming acquainted with related developments.

2008

In 2008 I facilitated the 'First International Workshop on Knowledge Federation', which took place October 20-22 in Dubrovnik, Croatia.

'Design Is The Alternative To Tradition', by Dino Karabeg. In Design System Evolution - Proceedings of the 6th International Conference of the European Academy of Design, EAD06. The motivation for this article was the question, raised by the Ph-D Design community, how to found design as an academic field, on the Ph.D. level. In my letter to the Ph-D online conference I argued that traditional philosophy (the choice that seemed to be favored by the community) as foundation for design had problems and proposed information design as foundation.
