The HIIG at GOR 15

This year, like last year, the HIIG was programme partner for the Internet & Society track at the General Online Research Conference in Cologne. Here are my impressions from the conference.

Last year we had a session on open science, this year we talked about citizen science. In the citizen science session I presented our current work based on multiple case study research on citizen science platforms in Germany. I focused on elements that are important for involving volunteers in citizen science projects and discussed them in the context of collective intelligence. Our second speaker was Lisa Pettibone (Naturkunde Museum, Berlin) who presented insights from an online consultation process that is part of creating a 2020 strategy for citizen science in Germany.

I particularly enjoyed Eszter Hargittai’s (Northwestern University) talk about the skill divide in online participation where she analysed differences in editing behavior on Wikipedia between men and women. In another session, she presented interesting findings on internet skills among the elderly, showing that financial circumstances have an influence on online abilities.

I was impressed by Suzy Moat’s (University of Warwick) excellent keynote about quantifying human behavior with internet data. Based on research she conducted with her colleagues, she showed that internet users from wealthier countries are more likely to search for information about the future, that patterns in searches for financial information on Wikipedia and Google might offer clues to subsequent stock market changes, and that people who live in places that are perceived as scenic or beautiful tend to report better wellbeing. It was a pleasure to listen to complex research results being presented with such clarity.
