[ox-en] Planetwork Journal Launches

From: Ken Jordan <ken>
PlaNetwork Journal Launches

We are pleased to announce the inaugural issue of PlaNetwork Journal, a
quarterly online publication for in-depth articles by those engaged in
applying new technology to benefit the public interest.   

The influence of information technology on fields as diverse as
environmental science, biology, ecological design, alternative
economics, distributed democracy, social network theory, and interactive
forms of art is transforming the landscape of the possible. Over the
past four years, PlaNetwork conferences have been a meeting place for
researchers, software designers, entrepreneurs, independent scholars,
artists, and activists working at the intersection between technology
and societal transformation.  

PlaNetwork Journal is a place where practitioners can present their work
and ideas to those outside their own field who share their concern about
the challenges facing the ecosystem and democracy.

We hope you enjoy PlaNetwork Journal.

- Ken Jordan (editor) and Elizabeth Thompson (publisher)
