"The Implication of the Interconnectedness: Offline Flash Gathering as a Catalyst for Online Interpersonal Relationship" Paper presented at the annual meeting of the International Communication Association, Dresden International Congress Centre, Dresden, Germany, Online <PDF>. 2019-09-16 <http://citation.allacademic.com/meta/p92288_index.html>

Abstract: By introducing the phenomenon of bungae (an offline flash gathering) and the online community prevalent in current Korean society, the present study aims to explore how online community members perceive their interpersonal relationships in online community and how offline flash gatherings influence online interpersonal relationships. The results (through combined quantitative and qualitative data analyses) showed that (1) there was a significant, positive relationship between the experience of bungae participation and the perception of interpersonal relationship, (2) there was a statistically significant difference in the perception of sense of presence in their interpersonal relationships between online and cyber groups. Moreover, qualitative data analyses (through the interviews) suggests that providing nonverbal interaction in physical contact, the interconnectedness played an essential role in facilitating emotional attachment and commitment for developing and maintaining interpersonal relationships in online groups.
The implications of bungae as a symbol of interconnectedness within the Korean cultural variances were disscused

Abstract: This is a focus study that shows how culture-influenced practices reinvented the use of telephones in Nigeria through a widespread phenomenon known as "flashing". Flashing occurs when a call is placed from a wireless telephone and the caller hangs up when s/he anticipates that the recipient is about to take the call. In essence, the caller's identification flashes on the recipient's telephone screen. The intent is for the recipient to identify the caller and then place a call back.

Abstract: As part of the National Science Foundation DUE-0941388 grant, Flash applets for WeBWorK online homework system, we are developing a collection of Flash enabled online homework problems. WeBWorK is an open source free online homework system for mathematics available through the MAA. The WeBWorK National Problem Library contains a collection of thousands of homework problems available for use in mathematics and other courses. In this brief talk, we demonstrate problems which will be available in the National Problem Library for use this fall which incorporate Flash. These problems allow for better visualization and for different types of student interaction with the content as compared to the standard online or textbook homework problems.

4. Nicholas, Kyle. "Flash Memory: The Legacy of Napster in the Popularization of the Internet" Paper presented at the annual meeting of the International Communication Association, Dresden International Congress Centre, Dresden, Germany, Online <PDF>. 2019-09-16 <http://citation.allacademic.com/meta/p90927_index.html>
Publication Type: Conference Paper/Unpublished Manuscript
Abstract: This article examines the interaction of technical, social, institutional and philosophical developments that predated Napster, and how Napster came to signify these qualities (however briefly) for a generation of users. Napster arrived at the confluence of social currents including a decade of institutional spending on networks, intensified focus on teens and young adults as a market, and the rapid commercialization of the Internet in the ‘dot com’ boom. Napster’s importance, it is argued, was as a techno-cultural pheomenon, a totem of a belief system that included both commercial and communal components.
This paper traces the historical roots of Napster and related technologies, but also focuses on the role of American universities in promoting first Internet adoption, then broadband networks as both research and marketing strategies. It also compares the rhetoric of the Internet in the 2000 US presidential elections and the marketing of ‘cool’ surrounding Internet adoption at the end of the 1990s. It pinpoints the nexus of commercial, educational and political forces that branded the Internet as both a vital economic engine and an emblem of youthful vitality and resistance.
With its irresitable lure of free music, Napster introduced millions to peer networks, open source idealism, and the concept of gift economics, and popularized emerging shifts in producer-consumer relationships. These ideas came to embody the Internet (and especially the World Wide Web) for many users, altering the social and economic positions of global media congomerates and provoking new models of media creation and distribution.

Abstract: Flash&Math is a well-known ActionScript library for the development of Flash applets for the teaching and learning of mathematics ("mathlets"). In this talk, we describe an extension of Flash&Math for ordinary differential equations, which allows the dynamic display of solutions of ODEs. The structure and use of the library will be discussed, and sample applets using the library will be presented. Also, as part of the National Science Foundation DUE-0941388 grant, Flash applets for WeBWorK online homework system, we are developing a collection of Flash enabled online homework problems. We will present a sample of Flash-enabled problems on ordinary differential equations which will be made available in the National Problem Library.
