Dear Culturemondo group members

Apologies for cross-posting, and to anyone who won't be joining us in
Taipei in a few days' time. I am posting this here so that it has an
online home, and hopefully this way everyone will get to see it.

We're very nearly there! 4 days to go before we all meet in Taipei. I
hope you're as excited as I am.

A few final things before we see each other:
- the finalised version of the roundtable agenda is now available on
the Culturemondo website: http://www.culturemondo.org/files/Final%20agenda.pdf
- A flickr group has been set up, where you can send your pictures
from the conference: http://www.flickr.com/groups/967688@N23/
- Flickr and blog tags for the conference are CMRT08
- The Twitter hashtag, for the Twitterati among you, is #CMRT08

Those of us travelling from overseas will all be staying at the
Fullerton East hotel. http://www.taipeifullerton.com.tw/east_32/html/eng_south/about_us.htm

If you have any travel or logistics questions, please contact Mengshan
Lee b911...@gmail.com.

There are two formal functions for all participants to attend.
The first is a reception on Wednesday night (19.00 after 'Cinq a
Sept'), and the dress code is smart-casual.
The second is a formal banquet on Thursday at Shinyeh Restaurant from
18.30 to 21.30 http://www.shinyeh.com.tw/taiwan_d.htm. The dress code
for this is, as Ilya puts it 'Smart ++'.

On Friday, we will all be heading to the hills, to Da Shan Wu Jia, for
dinner. This will be an informal occasion, so no dress code!

There is also the option for all participants to attend Taipei Barcamp
on the evening of Monday 10th December. You can find more information
about barcamps here: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/BarCamp

Finally, I have received most of the x10 Presentations now, and they
can be found here: http://www.slideshare.net/event/culturemondo-roundtable-taipei-2008/slideshows
If you have not yet submitted a x10 Presentation, I would be very
grateful if you could please do as soon as possible.

I look forward to meeting you all on Tuesday or Wednesday. Wishing you
all a safe (and comfy) journey.


Kind regards

Ruth Harper

Dear Ruth,

If I'm not mistaken, I'm not speaking? I really hesitate to go to Taipei
for a week and not talk?

Greetings, Rob

Dear Culturemondo Members,

Shahidul Alam, one of the (very entertaining and thoughtful)
participants from our roundtable last year, has been detained by
Indian border security forces while working on the Bangladesh side of
the border:

http://unheardvoice.net/blog/2009/06/16/shahidul-alam/
http://www.mediahelpingmedia.org/content/view/387/1/

His friends and colleagues are "calling on the international community
to push for his release."

Best,

David

Dear Ilya, Jane and David,
 
Thanks for sharing the notice about Shahidul's detention. The recollections of Shahidul from Taipei remain very fresh with me. Kindly advise as to what coordinated effort is being planned to mount an appeal for his safe release and I will be only too ready to join in.
 
If there is also a way to convey to Shahidul our concerns and support for him, I believe it would be good to do so.
 
Everyone, warm greetings.
 
Warmest,
 
Joe

That's super to hear that. 
I just twittered the case after finding Chinese blogger sharing the same situation. He was taken away by unidentifiable people(policemen) after publishing photos on a local riots.   http://www.danwei.org/internet/netizen_detained_in_nankang_as.php

Thanks David for bringing this to our attention and so glad the news is good on Shahidul's safe release.
 
It is very comforting to know that this network was so quick to react and offer to work together to support a colleague in need. I hope very much that we will find another time to meet and share our thoughts and ideas freely as we did in Taiwan.
 
Best wishes to you all, Jane
