Carnegie Mellon Innovation Forum on Services and Technologies for Interactive Media (NET-STIM)

February 28th, 2010 by NearInteraction

Held at Pavilhão do Conhecimento in Lisbon, the foremost goal of the forum was to gather like minded expertise of Portuguese research centers, private companies and government agencies working in key interactive technologies and services of digital media. Diogo Terroso was invited to represent NearInteraction and partake in the opening roundtable discussion on Technologies for Interactive Media, exploring how interactive media services require an interdisciplinary approach, where the disciplines of design, communication, psychology, anthropology and sociology need to combine in an effective and innovative way in order to create new products and services, for example, media distribution services (the iPod and iTunes or eBooks and Kindle), social networks (Facebook and Twitter), or co-creation services (like YouTube and Blogging).
