    created a post titled, "Computing in (e)Scapes // Spring 2014 Computation Lecture Series":

      Theme: Computing in (e)Scapes Humans precede computers in computation: we compute via intertwined acts of active perception and bodily action. We observe, interact with and learn from places and things as we wander in scapes. Our experiences are then put into use – this time to make (within) scapes. Unexpected discoveries, novel encounters are [...]

    Onur Yuce Gun responded to Theodora Vardouli: it will be a great opening discussion for Read DCG SP'13...
    created a post titled, "A Publication on Design and Computation":

    This publication bears a title with an intentional strike through, which, first, should signify the act of design over computation for all designers. Second, it should remind us of our responsibility to continuously make inquiries into computation and its relation to design to advance our understandings of the subject area. The advancements in computer applications [...]
