Back in North America for the first time since 1999, ICHIM continues its tradition of meeting every two years to survey the changing synergies of culture, heritage and informatics. This tenth meeting visits digital culture in the age of Web 2.0, contributed content, open source, broadband services, and ubiquitous computing. From one perspective all seems new, while another draws a direct line from the videodisk of 1991, through the CD-ROMs of 1993, and the Web of 1995 to e-commerce, e-government, and social computing.
This year we will again examine major trends, novel research frontiers, and possible futures. Best practices, innovative policies, disruptive technologies and radical business plans will be promoted and critiqued. And as always, economics, law, and public policy will be visited afresh.
