The new issue of Human IT is now available on the Web at
The issue includes a number of articles that I hope will be of interest to
readers of Humanist. Human IT is a multidisciplinary, scholarly journal
aiming to present research and discussion on digital media as
communicative, aesthetic, and ludic instruments.

Journal of Digital Information announces
A SPECIAL ISSUE on Information Design Models and Processes
(Volume 5, issue 2, August 2004)
Special issue Editor: David Lowe, Faculty of Engineering, University of
Technology, Sydney

   From the special issue editorial:
"Recent work has contributed to an emerging understanding of how to design
the information structures that underpin the Web. While current research
has often produced effective models and processes, the research outcomes
have had questionable impact on current commercial practice - something of
significant concern as Web systems mature and become an increasingly
integral element of our social infrastructure. Commercial development
practices are typically either ad hoc or reflect the disciplinary
background of the developers without adequately understanding the unique
characteristics of Web systems ­ characteristics that have significant
implications for the models that we might wish to construct and the
approaches which should be taken to their development. In effect, much work
remains on supporting the wide adoption of emerging modelling approaches
and development processes. This special issue provides a sample of work
that is beginning to address some of these issues."

The issue includes the following papers:

R. Calvo, J. Lee, X. Li (June 2004)
