      FM 2 Speed Demons, Contemplative Places: The Digital
      Importance of Momentum and Meditation
      The Second First Monday Conference
      5-6 August 2002, Aarhus, Denmark

      Please distribute!

      Speed - it means a lot in this digital era and brings with it a lot
      of meanings. We expect speed to increase in transportation, in the
      ways that organisations change, in the arrival of new products, in
      the creation of services, in peak performance in sports, and
      everywhere else. Speed is considered by some as the ultimate
      parameter of competition translating into increased profit and
      productivity. Speed is felt - unconsciously or consciously - at some
      level by everyone. Speed affects the ways we define 'control',
      'certainty', and 'predictability'. Still, there are many processes
      that cannot - yet - be accelerated much; a pregnancy, the growth of a
      tree, the creation of art, the healing of sorrow or trauma, and
      learning all take time.

      The Internet and information technology have advanced the prominent
      role of speed, but does technology have meaning in non-accelerative
      processes? Should traditional oases of contemplation, such as
      libraries, churches, museums, and ateliers, ban or embrace the
      Internet? How can we organise knowledge mean when knowledge creation
      is in a flux? What cultural heritage will be left for future

      This conference will consider these and other related questions and
      examine them from different perspectives - artistic, scientific,
      historical, religious, and political. Speakers and participants are
      invited for two days to dwell in a discourse of value characterised
      by sustainability, fascination and wonder, and feeling.

      The organisers of the conference are:

      The Alexandra Institute, Center for New Ways of Working
      (http://nwow.alexandra.dk) conducts research and consulting in design
      and evaluation of the integration of mobile and pervasive ICT,
      workspace design, and knowledge management in project organised
      collaborative work organisations.

      First Monday (http://firstmonday.org), is one of the most widely read
      peer-reviewed, Internet-only journals, dedicated to the Internet.
      Over one million papers were downloaded from First Monday's server in
      the year 2000, accessed by some 340,000 unique hosts using the
      Internet from 160 different countries. Published since May 1996,
      originally in Copenhagen and now in Chicago, First Monday has
      published 322 papers, written by 382 different authors, in its five
      year history, as well as reviews and interviews.

      The State and University Library (http://www.statsbiblioteket.dk) is
      one of Denmark's national libraries and the main library of Aarhus
      University. A key target for the Library, which is 100 years old in
      2002, is to optimize the use of information technology to provide
      users with ready and unimpeded access to all relevant types of
      information, whether held on paper or electronically. At the same
      time the preservation of cultural heritage is one of the Library's
      tasks. The Library is involved in a project to preserve Danish
      cultural heritage which exists on the Internet.
